Japanese printmaker Taisui Inuzuka’s two shin hanga (“new prints”) prints of dahlias and morning glories conjure up a warm summer day, replete with bright blooms. Inuzuka’s flower prints stem from a long tradition that originated in tenth-century China and first appeared in Japan around the fifteenth century, but such still lifes were not favored subjects among most shin hanga artists. Thankfully, Inuzuka forged his own path and created these exquisite compositions.
Contains five each of the following notecards:
Morning Glories in a Brown Pot, c. 1931
Dahlias in a Brown Vase, c. 1931
