Iwata Sentaro - Born in Tokyo, Iwata Sentaro studied with the famous shin hanga artist Ito Shinsui, and is best known for his portraits of beautiful women done after WWII. His attractive designs of contemporary beauties feature graceful flowing line work and striking compositions, creating a modern interpretation of the traditional Japanese bijin genre. Many feature delicate bokashi shading, such as a soft pink flush on the cheeks or eyes, or subtle shadows along the neck to add depth and definition. Some are posed portraits, but others capture the women seemingly unaware during quiet, reflective moments, offering an intimate glimpse at their world. Please note, this is a lithograph reproduction, not a woodblock print.
