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.
