Asano,Takeji (1900 - 1999 )

Born in Kyoto in 1900, Takeji Asano graduated from Kyoto City School of Fine Arts and Crafts in 1919, followed by Kyoto City Specialist School of Painting in 1923. Though he initially focused on Japanese-style painting and the tutelage of Bakusen Tsuchida, Takeji became an active, founding member of the Kyoto Sosaku-Hangakai in 1929. The following year, he collaborated with Benji Asada and Tomikichiro Tokuriki on the series Creative Prints of Twelve Months in New Kyoto, published by Uchida. Takeji was a talented carver and contributed to many different collaborative and solo series. He was an associate member of Nihon Hanga Kyokai from 1955 to 1960. Takeji's landscape prints may be signed “takeji to” in kanji, while his later humorous prints from the 1970s and 80s are signed with the year and the initials “T.A.” Ronin Gallery features a variety of Takeji Asano Japanese-style artwork for sale.

Modern Art | Modern Japanese Prints and Paintings

The 20th century saw the emergence of two modern Japanese print movements: Shin Hanga, or “new prints,” and Sosaku Hanga, or “creative prints.” Both sought an identity somewhere between centuries of rich cultural tradition and modern global character. With growing realism, changing techniques, and a newfound international audience, the Shin Hanga movement portrayed familiar Japanese themes through modern eyes. From sensual beauties and expressive actors, to atmospheric landscapes and sensitive nature studies, the principal genres of ukiyo-e reasserted themselves with renewed vigor. The Sosaku Hanga movement emphasized the participation of the artist in every aspect of production. From carving to printing, modern Japanese printmaking adopted a more spontaneous, expressive attitude through the artistic explorations of this movement. Ranging from figural to abstract, Sosaku Hanga flourished after WWII. Explore Ronin Gallery's selection of modern prints and paintings below.
