Exhibition in Art & History Museum: Shin hangaThe new prints of Japan 1900 - 1960
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.
The public will see a selection of masterpieces from three leading shin hanga collections, that is two Dutch private collections and the Japanese collection of Watanabe Shōzaburō, the publisher who was the key figure of the shin hanga movement. For this exhibition, his grandson is lending prints that have never before been seen outside Japan. These loans are supplemented with shin hanga prints from the Art & History Museum’s own rich collection.
