Seven Masters: 20th-Century Japanese Woodblock Prints

Experience the breathtaking color and charm of the shin hanga (new print) movement in Japan through Seven Masters. Landscapes, beauty portraits, and traditional kabuki actors are featured in these masterful prints, which represent both a revival of Japanese tradition and an incorporation of influences from Western art (particularly the light and mood of Impressionism). Drawn from the superb collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Art, the seven masters included in the exhibition created captivating images, boldly exemplifying this new approach to woodblock print design.

Seven Masters: 20th-Century Japanese Woodblock Prints was organized by the Minneapolis Institute of Art and is toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC.
