About the artist.
Takahashi Shōtei was an artist working in the Japanese tradition of woodblock prints. He was a contributor to the shin-hanga ( ‘New Prints’ ) movement that revitalised traditional practice in the early twentieth century and he collaborated with its champion Shōzaburō Watanabe. Shin-hanga was partially inspired by western Impressionism but confined its work to typical Japanese subjects. Many of the prints were exported and contributed to the rise of Japonisme in the west. Artists such as Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh and Charles Rennie Mackintosh all incorporated Japanese influences into their works.
Produced by Duille, Northampton, England.
