Entrance, 1979 by Tadashi Osaka (born 1937)

Original Tadashi Osaka (born 1937) Japanese Woodblock Print
Entrance, 1979

Sosaku Hanga - The sosaku hanga or creative print movement in Japan began in the early part of the twentieth century. Unlike the traditional collaborative woodblock printing process utilizing a separate artist, carver, and printer along with a publisher, the sosaku hanga movement emphasized artist involvement in designing, carving, and printing the blocks himself, as the sole creator of his work. The movement gained popularity following World War II, earning international acclaim and expanding subject matter to include abstraction. Today most contemporary Japanese print artists design, carve, and print their woodblocks themselves, continuing the vibrant creative tradition established with ukiyo-e. Sosaku hanga prints encompass a wide range of subjects and expressive artistic styles, and are a great choice for a collector interested in modern and contemporary prints.

Comments - A great, large format contemporary design which makes beautiful use of the wood grain running across the lower portion of the image. A fine limited edition woodblock that would make a terrific framed display.
