Full Description
This catalogue is the first comprehensive, scholarly publication on the Japanese print artist Saitō Kiyoshi to be published in English and accompanies the first major exhibition of his work in the United States since his death. Saitō was a central member of Japan’s creative print (sōsaku hanga) movement, and one of the best known and most popular modern Japanese artists in the United States. His work is appreciated for his refined sense of design and active use of woodgrain. The fully-illustrated book includes thematic essays, illustrations demonstrating Saitō’s technique, discussion of seals and signatures, chronology, and bibliography.
