Japan Modern – Japanese Prints From The Elise Wessels Collection

Sold out

Japan Modern’ presents an overview of Japanese printing in the first half of the twentieth century, a time when Japan was flourishing. Prints made after 1900 portray the turbulent times unlike anything else. Using an ancient wood-carving technique, artists show us modern life: streets scenes with high-rise buildings, cars, railroads, factories and Japanese women with modern hairdos dancing and drinking cocktails. However, more traditional subjects, such as idealized portraits of women and romantic landscapes are portrayed as well. Unique in the Netherlands, the Elise Wessels collection comprises Japanese prints from the first half of the twentieth century; outside Japan, it is counted among the best in its field.
