Fuji Arts Contemporary Exhibition Part II - Over the summer we enjoyed exploring and selling from a recently acquired collection of contemporary prints purchased in Japan. This month we’re excited to post the second part of this collection as a follow up exhibition of contemporary designs. We’re looking forward to sharing these beautiful prints, all selected with an eye to the modern Japanese aesthetic. Have a look at the group and click on the Contemporary Japanese design link to see the entire collection.
Roofs - Interesting sosaku hanga view looking out over the tiled rooftops of a city. The heavy black outlines add graphic impact. Takeda Takeo graduated from Tokyo University, and studied printmaking with Onoe Tadahshige and Fumio Kitaoka. He was a member of Nihon Hanga Kyokai and exhibited regularly with sosaku hanga groups. His prints are rarely seen on the market.
