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 auction features one of the most famous series in the Shin Hanga movement, "Ten Types of Female Nudes" by ISHIKAWA Toraji. Some of the designs in the series were banned by the Japanese government because of "the bad influence to the public moral" and only very limited numbered prints were printed. We are offering two of this controversial series in the coveted "First Edition" printing before W.W.II.

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.
