I went to the Carnegie Museum's show of Japanese prints on Saturday. I know NOTHING about Japanese woodcuts, but liked what I saw.
The show, now in Pittsburgh, is on view through April 15, 2007. Lots of good stuff. The colors that these artists used are so pleasant to linger over, so vibrant; it's hard to believe that some are 50 or 100 years old. Kawase Hasui was just one of the print makers honored, and I wanted to share a sample of his work today. These images were pulled from the Hanga Gallery site.
