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.
