Japanese 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 several years of apprenticeship and practical experience. An artist usually joined a painting school at the age of fourteen and remained with his master for at least four years. The apprenticeship of a carver lasted for up to ten years.
Today Japanese prints represent a wide variety from the 17th century until contemporary works. And in spite of its age this art is still very alive and has not lost the fascination that so many people feel about art from Japan.
