All by Myself: Japanese Creative Prints

September 16, 2020–September 19, 2021

The long tradition of exquisite printmaking in Japan is due, in part, to the division of labor, having different specialists handle each stage of the printmaking process: designing, carving and printing. However, in the early twentieth century certain print artists began doing everything themselves, producing what were known as sosaku-hanga, or “creative prints,” which are highly individual expressions in both style and subject matter. This exhibition will present examples from several artists working within the sosaku-hanga movement, including recent acquisitions.
