Sosaku Hanga - The sosaku hanga or creative print movement in Japan began in the early part of the twentieth century. Unlike the traditional collaborative woodblock printing process utilizing a separate artist, carver, and printer along with a publisher, the sosaku hanga movement emphasized artist involvement in designing, carving, and printing the blocks himself, as the sole creator of his work. The movement gained popularity following World War II, earning international acclaim and expanding subject matter to include abstraction. Today most contemporary Japanese print artists design, carve, and print their woodblocks themselves, continuing the vibrant creative tradition established with ukiyo-e. Sosaku hanga prints encompass a wide range of subjects and expressive artistic styles, and are a great choice for a collector interested in modern and contemporary prints.

Kawanishi Hide - A self-taught artist, Kawanishi Hide was born and worked in Kobe. Kawanishi began exhibiting woodblocks in 1923 with the Nihon Sosaku-Hanga Kyokai (Japan Creative Print Association). He was influenced by the sosaku hanga master Onchi Koshiro, art deco posters, and European artists such as Lautrec, Gauguin, and Matisse. His bold use of flat planes of vibrant color, and black as a color rather than an outline or key block, gives his works a lively quality.
