This volume presents more than 1,000 exemplary 20th-century Japanese woodblock prints from the collection of Carnegie Museum of Art. Taken together, the collection reflects the stylistic movements, aesthetic directions, and historic changes of the past century. There is particular emphasis on two significant movements: s saku-hanga (creative prints), represented by in-depth selections by Hiratsuka Un’ichi, Onchi K shir and Munakata Shik ; and shin-hanga (new prints), with works by Kawase Hasui and Hashiguchi Goy . The museum also possesses several complete series of prints produced in such limited numbers that they are rarely seen today, including the One Hundred Views of New Tokyo, created between 1929 and 1932. An essay on the history and significance of the collection provides a brief introduction to Japanese printmaking in the twentieth century, making this illustrated guide an invaluable reference for researchers, curators, collectors, and general enthusiasts of Japanese art.
