Japanese woodblock prints made in old tradition are the result of a team work of four different persons - the artist, the carver, the printer and the publisher. Each of them needed many years of apprenticeship and practical experience. An artist usually joined a school of well established artists at the age of fourteen and remained in the studio for at least four years. The apprenticeship of a carver and a printer could last for ten years.
Today, Japanese prints represent not only the woodblock printing but also a wide variety of techniques by the artists in different background and schooling.
In spite of its age, the Japanese art is still very much alive and has not lost its unique appeal of the combination of the cutting edge technique and the ancient tradition to the people all over the world.
Featured Items: (1) "Art Nouveau"style designs by the renowned designer Hisui SUGIURA during the height of the romantic trend in the late Meiji - Taisho. (2) A "hashira-e" by the Edo master Shuncho. A lovely picture of two young people and their pet dog. "Haslhira-e" was mounted on a pillar "hashira" in Japan. Many of them have very intriguing and innovative designs because of the restriction of the format. (3) The last but not the least, the works by the modern Netherland artist Chris van Otterloo. Do you know he was the only "official" student of the master Ryohei Tanaka?

|The Utagawa School was the dominant line of printmaking in the nineteenth century, and it was from a commercial point of view the most successful one. Toyoharu and Toyokuni were the founding fathers. And with Kunisada and Kuniyoshi, the Utagawa school reached its commercial and social peak as a kind of pop art mass-media publishing company for the common people.|
