Tadashige Nishida - Born in 1942 on Amami Oshima Island in the Kagoshima prefecture, Tadashige Nishida studied at the Chiba University near Tokyo and was interested in the Tokyo contemporary art scene as a student. He also studied contemporary European art in Spain in 1967 and American art in the United States in 1968. He participated in a number of group shows of contemporary artists from 1961 through the 1980s, and was the subject of numerous one-man shows during the same period. He is a recognized contemporary woodblock print master in Japan, and his works are actively collected by Japanese and foreign collectors.
Contemporary Woodblock Prints by Watanabe - Handsome design from a group of contemporary woodblocks published by the famous Watanabe Publisher of Tokyo. Watanabe commissioned contemporary artists to create designs which were printed and distributed by Watanabe to special customers only. The artists carved the blocks themselves, which Watanabe then printed on hand-made Torinoko paper. These are great designs by a variety of contemporary artists, including Fumio Fujita, who is well known for his images of trees. Subjects range from landscapes and city scenes to figures and abstract designs. A terrific choice for display, either singly or in groups.
