Product Description
Japanese Woodblock Prints 2018 Engagement Calendar
The Japanese woodblock printmaking movement known as shin hanga (new prints) was popular from around 1915 through 1942, although it resumed for a short time in the 1950s. The movement sought to recapture the imagery and feel of ukiyo-e (“pictures of the floating world”), the Japanese printmaking tradition dating back to the seventeenth century, through a Western-influenced lens.

During the progressive Meiji period (1868–1912), interest in ukiyo-e declined in Japan as a more modern aesthetic became popular, and by the early 1900s the tradition had practically disappeared. But due mainly to the dedication of publisher Watanabe Shōzaburō (1885–1962), who undertook the mission of educating his countrymen about the tradition and encouraged them to collect woodblock prints, an era of elegant “new prints” began.

The thirty-two woodcuts in this calendar are selections from Kawase Hasui (1883–1957), Ohara Shōson (1877–1945), Hiroshi Yoshida (1876–1950), and other artists of the period. All are from the collection of the Toledo Museum of Art.
