In this comprehensive guide, artist and printmaker April Vollmer—one of the best known mokuhanga practitioners and instructors in the West—combines her deep knowledge of this historic printmaking practice with expert step-by-step instruction, guidance on materials and studio practices, and a diverse collection of prints by leading contemporary artists. At once practical and inspirational, this handbook is as useful to serious printmakers and artists as it is to creative people drawn to Japanese history and aesthetics.

Japanese Woodblock Prints

by Andreas Marks, Japanese Woodblock Prints Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Japanese Woodblock Prints books, Japanese woodblock prints, or ukiyo-e, are the most recognizable Japanese art form. Their massive popularity has spread from Japan to be embraced by a worldwide audience. Covering the period from the beginning of the Japanese woodblock print in the 1680s until the year 1900, Japanese Woodblock Prints provides a detailed survey of all the famous ukiyo-e artists, along with over 500 full-color prints. Unlike previous examinations of this art form, Japanese Woodblock Prints includes detailed histories of the publishers of woodblock prints—who were often the driving force determining which prints, and therefore which artists, would make it into mass circulation for a chance at critical and popular success. Invaluable as a guide for ukiyo-e enthusiasts looking for detailed information about their favorite Japanese woodblock print artists and prints, it is also an ideal introduction for newcomers to the world of the woodblock print. This lavishly illustrated book will be a valued addition to the libraries of scholars, as well as the general art enthusiast.

Japanese Prints During The Allied Occupation 1945 1952

by Lawrence Smith, Japanese Prints During The Allied Occupation 1945 1952 Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Japanese Prints During The Allied Occupation 1945 1952 books, In 1945 much of urban Japan lay in ruins, the land occupied by foreign powers for the first time in the country's history. To many Japanese it seemed that everything had been lost, but in fact the nation would quickly demonstrate -- and on a much larger scale than ever before -- its ability to recover physically, economically and culturally from apparent disaster. In the visual arts, the years between 1945 and 1952 were a period of steady progress and considerable achievement in painting, calligraphy, prints, ceramics and other crafts.This book examines in detail how one school of printmakers, under the leadership of Onchi Koshiro (1889-1955), survived with difficulty the Pacific War and as artists found themselves among those calling for a new search for the nation's heart in its aesthetic traditions. They also received unexpected appreciation from connoisseurs among the occupying forces and administrators. Symbolic of this process was the meeting of the American graphic artist Ernst Hacker (1917-87), posted to Tokyo in April 1946, with Onchi and his circle and with Munakata Shiko (1903-75), who was then almost unknown. Prints and archives acquired by Hacker at that time and recently given to The British Museum by his widow form the unique basis of this study.By 1952, when the Allied Occupation ended, work by Onchi and his circle and by Munakata was eagerly collected in the United States, and these two, introduced to the world by their American admirers, are now recognized as Japan's greatest print artists of the twentieth century.

Modern Impressions

by Frank Lewis Chance, Modern Impressions Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Modern Impressions books, This exhibition assembles ... seventy-two post-World War II Japanese prints by thirty-six artists ... Together, the works provide a comprehensive view of a vital and ambitious printmaking movement, often referred to as sosaku hanga ... Most of the pieces in the exhibition are woodblock prints, but unlike traditional ukiyo-e, which were produced collaboratively by artists, artisans and publishers, the prints in this show were typically made by the artist working alone, with the goal of creating a more individualistic means of expression. The visual content of the prints ranges from figurative representation to pure abstraction, and stylistic influences can be seen from both Asian and non-Asian art.
