The period of art printmaking in Japan after the W.W.II was characterized by the artists' eagerness to learn new techniques and their participation to the events and exhibitions all over the world. In these endeavors, the Japanese artists have been quite successful and soon became the familiar faces in the international art scenes. The works by the masters such as Ryohei TANAKA in etching, Katsunori HAMANISHI in mezzotint, Hideo TAKEDA in silk screen gracefully reside in the world renowned museums, the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, the British Museum to name a few.
