Shin-Hanga: Japan’s New Prints

Some of Japan’s most iconic artists emerged from the shin-hanga (“new prints”) period and their works continue to have a lasting impression on collectors to this day. Defined by majestic landscapes and elegant depictions of women, along with the use of vivid colors and an exceptional attention to detail, woodblock prints from the shin-hanga period combined Japanese printmaking techniques with realist interpretation.
