The Shin hanga (literally « new prints ») art movement was a revival of traditional printmaking (ukiyo e) in the early 20th century. The publisher Watanabe Shōzaburō (1885-1962), noting the decline in xylographic production due to competition from new imported techniques such as photography and lithography, was the movement's greatest promoter. He gathered around him artists whose drawings were printed using traditional woodblock printing techniques. While retaining classic themes such as landscapes, beautiful women (bijin), kabuki actors and flowers-and-birds, Shin hanga prints also reflect a modernizing Japan and seduce with a new aesthetic and an extremely high production quality. Artists: Kawase Hasui, Itō Shinsui, Ohara Koson, Kasamatsu Shirō, Komura Settai, … This exhibition is a logical follow-up to the major Ukiyo-e exhibition held at the Museum in 2016 2017. It takes up the history of traditional printmaking in Japan where the 2016 exhibition ended.
