Yamato-e Prints - The traditional Japanese painting style known as "yamato-e" dates back centuries to the Heian era. The Kyoto artist Matsuoka Eikyu is credited with reviving and modernizing the Yamato style in the 1920s and 1930s. In 1928, he and a group of Kyoto artists designed the series "Yamato Prints: Eight Views of Japan," featuring eight landscape woodblock prints, published by Shin Yamato-e Mokuhanga Kanko-kai. These lovely, painterly images are beautifully printed to capture the look and feel of the artist's brushstrokes and subtle gradations of color. Each print has a seal on the reverse with the publisher name, artist, title, and the name of the expert carver, Yamagishi Kazue. These rare and beautiful designs are a great choice for a shin hanga collector.
