This auction offers original Japanese prints from the Edo and Meiji period, the Shin hanga and Sosaku hanga art movement, and modern Japanese prints after 1945 to contemporary.
Featured Items: In the early 20th century, the print artists who used to have plenty of works in woodblock printing field had to find new sources of income. The decorative prints for small envelopes and cards, ex-libris were precious few items for which the popular demands were still high for the woodblock prints. Today, they are seldom produced in woodblock prints because of the labor intensive nature of the production. These well-made small items have attracted avid collectors ever since the early 20th century.
Featured Artist: Yumeji TAKEHISA. The dreamy, fragile looking girls Yumeji invented in his works were so popular during 1900 - 1930s, they became the cultural icon of the Taisho - early Showa era. Many artists imitated "Yumeji Look" to jump on the band wagon of popularity. He has been considered as the main figure who propelled “Taisho romanticism”.
Even today, he has been one of the most beloved artists in Japan.
Yumeji's works were prominently featured in the articles "Beauties and Beyond" by Nozomi Naoi and "Takehisa Yumeji'sDesigns for Music Score Covers" by Sabine Schenk in "Andon 98", 2015.
