“handa: Moonlit Sea, Hasegawa Night, by Shoda Koho, woodblock print, ca. I’m partial to Shoda Koho’s work because I own one of his prints. I haven’t been able to find mine online. I should scan it someday.
Modern Japanese block prints - Shin Hanga - move me like no other form of art. They have sensitive, wonderful use of color, profoundly beautiful (yet simple) compositions, gorgeous light, an unmatched sympathy for nature and atmosphere.
