9789074822206: The Female Image: 20th Century Prints of Japanese Beauties (English and Japanese Edition)

"The Female Image" is a comprehensive survey of the genre of "bijinga" ("prints of beautiful women") produced in the "Shin-hanga" ("new print") tradition that evolved in the early 20th century. This bilingual (Japanese/English) publication is lavishly illustrated with works from Japanese, European and American public and private collections. Prints by major artists such as Hashiguchi Goy˘ (1880-1921), Torii Kotondo (1900-76) and It˘ Shinsui (1898-1972) are included, as are examples by more obscure print designers that have rarely been reproduced. Includes essays by Shinji Hamanaka of the Yamatane Museum of Art, Tokyo, contemplating the concept of "bijinga", and by Amy Reigle Newland on the appreciation of "Shin-hanga" in the West.
