The shin hanga landscape blooms from the union of memory and modernity. While nostalgic in their subject matter and woodblock medium, these “new prints” also reflect the infectious innovation of their time. Through growing realism, Impressionist techniques, and a newfound global audience, the work of these Shin Hanga artists speaks to the influence of Western values in the search for a modern Japan. Presenting the art prints of Hasui Kawase, Hiroshi Yoshida, and Shotei Takahashi, Forever and a Day considers the Japanese landscape, not in its 20th century reality, but with a nostalgic yearning for a century past.
