Japanese Woodblock Prints

Woodcut blocks, ukiyo-e created by Japanese artist from the 17th-19th century set the tone.

Yesterday, my sister-in-law called to see if I would like to hit the vintage shops. Moving through a building full of history is the perfect place to get lost for the afternoon. The store was delightfully broken-down into little rooms of content or just disarray. Sitting on a chair a cardboard portfolio called out, inside the cover was a collection of prints. I realized right away that they were Japanese block prints and once we turned them over, we knew that they were originals. Happily, we decided to buy them. Japanese woodblock prints have a very strong artistic history, so it was a wonderful learning experience to research just what we had in the portfolio. There are so many trends these prints can conjure up, from tattoos to sublimated story-lines, screenprint concepts, and color tones. Stationary ideas and layouts along with graphic design trends that can be created from the artistic elements the medium provides. The front and the back of these prints are inspiring.

Artist: Kawase Hasui, 1883-1957, his focus was on Tokyo, Japan landscapes.
