This auction features many sought after prints by the Sosaku Hanga luminaries such as Koshiro Onchi, Hide Kawanishi, Unichi Hiratsuka, Senpan Maekawa. The Sosaku Hanga artists deliberately chose the self-carved, self-printed woodblock printing method for the easy distribution of their works to the public. They were "Impressionists", who wanted to express their idea, impression and feeling freely without the style and method restrictions in the long established ukiyo-e tradition of print making in Japan.
It started by the simple black and white prints published in magazines, which were circulated among the print club members and friends. They eventually established their own unique styles and methods.

"Seibutsu Gyakko" (Back Lit Still Life). Although Toru Mabuchi was a fine technician and could do elaborate printing using thirty to fifty printing stages, he did not want to use only the traditional method. Since he had been interested in the Byzantine mosaics and the pointillist paintings of Seurat, he developed a printing technique by using small pieces of wood pasted on print blocks like mosaic stones.
This print was Mabuchi's rather early works before his signature mosaic method.
