Sōsaku hanga (creative prints) was an art movement starting in the early 20th century, which was shaped by the expectation that the artist must participate in every aspect of printmaking.

What are the characteristics of Osaka Prints?
The main subjects of Osaka prints are portraits of kabuki actors, their roles, and kabuki plays in general. Sometimes the images include the stage settings or essential attributes of the actor's part.
In comparison with Edo prints, Osaka prints are often more detailed in expression and color. Sometimes even the plain background was filled with color. The facial expressions of the portraits are more distinct and delicate. This remarkably high workmanship and high quality of materials, color and paper, make Osaka prints very precious. The so-called Osaka prints became favored among connoisseurs.

Please contact us by phone or email, so we can apply the distance rules.
