Japanese Prints @ St. Kate's: Selections from the Archives & Special Collections at St. Catherine University

Kasamatsu Shiro

Kasamatsu Shiro (笠松紫浪)

Kasamatsu Shiro explored various styles, mediums, and subjects in the shin-hanga (new print, 新版画) movement. While grounded in painting, he expanded into printmaking for publisher Watanabe Shōzaburō, who took a liking to his work and published numerous prints by the artist in the 1930s. After working with Watanabe for over twenty years, he entered into the Unsōdō studio where he created his most famous work, Eight Views of Tokyo, and explored different subjects such as the bird-and-flower genre (kacho-e, 花鳥絵).
