Watanabe: Japanese Print Envoy

Drawn from the Chazen’s collection of nearly four thousand Japanese prints, this exhibition focuses on the work of one publisher: Shozaburo Watanabe. Determined to renew the tradition of Japanese color woodcuts, Watanabe hired a new generation of artists and craftsmen to create prints that brought traditional techniques into the twentieth century. He called these prints “shin hanga” or “new prints,” now the generic name for the style his workshop pioneered.
