Shin Hanga was an art movement that began about 1910 in Japan and ended in the early 1960s. It was a renaissance of the traditional art of Japanese woodblock printmaking by adding some Western features like the effects of light and shadow and the use of a perspective. The result were pleasing prints of extremely high technical standard.
The center of the shin hanga art movement was Tokyo with famous print publisher Watanabe Shozaburo. He was the mentor and the driving force and the commercial genius behind shin hanga. Without him the movement would not exist today.
Today shin hanga is a collective field that is popular all over the world with an emphasis on Northern America.
In this auction, we present two very rare prints by Kyoto based Shin Hanga artist Bito Yamada. Evocative and swerve, reminiscent to the ancient capital. The must for the Shin Hanga collectors.

The art movement called Shin Hanga, meaning new prints, is as much connected with the name of Watanabe Shozaburo (1885-1962) as Pop Art with Andy Warhol. But Watanabe was a publisher and no artist. But most of all he was a business genius.
