Shin Hanga literally means New Prints. It was a new art movement starting in Japan around 1910 and took Japanese art prints to a new renaissance. The shin hanga movement integrated Western elements without giving up the old values of Japanese, traditional woodblock prints. Instead of blindly imitating Western art styles, the new movement concentrated on traditional subjects like landscapes, beautiful women and actor portraits. Inspired by European Impressionism the artists introduced the effects of light and the expression of individual moods. The result was a technically superb and compelling new style of Japanese prints.

The Japanese prints that we offer in our online auctions do not come from our stock - we have none - but from real consignments by collectors, dealers and artists. You pay only for what we sell - a commission on the hammered price. There are no other fees involved. And we pay fast (typically within 2 weeks).
PS: A shipment from the US or Japan to us (Germany) is uncomplicated - WE handle all import procedures.
How to Sell?
This page provides a list of major artists who designed or contributed to woodblock prints in shin hanga style in the first half of the twentieth century. The shin hanga activities were mostly centered in Tokyo, encouraged by the woodblock print publisher Shozaburo Watanabe. But also Kyoto and to a lesser degree Osaka were active in the shin hanga art movement.
