Featuring the stunning art of Kawase Hasui and Ohara Shoson, the Woodblock Prints Japanese Diary 2019
is a very stylish 120 page Japanese diary with wire-o binding and a soft cover with flaps. The early modern prints of Kawase Hasui and Ohara Shoson, two of the finest artists of the shin hanga
, or new prints, movement, were significant to reviving Japan’s woodblock print industry after the devastating Kanto earthquake of 1923. Like Hasui’s home, publisher Watanabe Shozaburo’s business was destroyed in the ensuing fire, as were hundreds of existing woodblocks stored there. Shozaburo quickly reopened his print shop and encouraged Hasui, Shoson, and other shin hanga
artists to create new works that blended Western aesthetics with traditional subjects of Japanese art. The prints were popular in the United States, and a landmark exhibition in 1930 at the Toledo Museum of Art brought together more than three hundred of these new prints. Many of the thirty-two works reproduced here were part of the original exhibition, and all are now in the collection of the Toledo Museum of Art. The Woodblock Prints Japanese Diary 2019
showcases these extraordinary prints in one week per page format and full-colour artwork printed with soy-based inks on FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper!
Size: 21cm x 15cm / 8.25 x 6 inches
