Exhibition Closes, Watanabe: Japanese Print Envoy

Presented by Kalamazoo Institute of Arts at Kalamazoo Institute of Arts

Last chance to see theĀ Watanabe: Japanese Print Envoy Exhibition.

This exhibition focuses on the Japanese publisher Shozaburo Watanabe, who started his business in the early 20th century, studying the traditions of Japanese woodcuts and hiring printers who could master the old techniques. To distinguish his prints, he hired designers capable of combining traditional subjects with the new style. Like the prints of the previous century, his were colorful images of Japan’s people and natural beauty, but with a fresh, western-influenced style to appeal to European and American art-lovers. His leadership established a new aesthetic in the print market.
