Villages Houses and Hydrangeas, Kyoto, 1990 by Seiji Sano (born 1959)

Original Seiji Sano (born 1959) Japanese Woodblock Print
Villages Houses and Hydrangeas, Kyoto, 1990

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 - Lovely view of a village house in Kyoto during a spring rain, with colorful hydrangeas in pink, violet, and lavender blossoming in the foreground. Tall trees frame the traditional thatched roof home with lush foliage filling the background. Seiji Sano moved to Kyoto in 1978, where he studied woodblock printmaking with noted artist Masao Ido. A beautiful design and a wonderful choice for display. A fine limited edition print, signed and numbered.
