Kaoru Saito was born in Kanagawa prefecture in 1931. He studied fine art under Tsuruta Goro and Arai from 1948 until 1950. The artist is a member of Shunyo-kai, an important Japanese association of printmakers.
The depiction of beautiful women has been a special subject of Japanese printmaking for centuries. Utamaro Kitagawa (1750-1806), for example, is the best known for this genre called bijin-e, images of beautiful women.
Kaori Saito combines an old, traditional Japanese theme and a Western technique, mezzotint. The traditional Japanese woodblock print technique does not allow such a degree of details and gradation. The mezzotint technique is much better for these close to photo-realistic images with intensive light and shadow effects.
Kaoru Saito's female images have a compelling touch of romanticism and of slightly erotic sensuality.
The edition sizes of the Kaoru Saito prints that we have sold so far, reached from 15 to 85. Here are a few more of these mesmerizing images.
