Sosaku Hanga and New Hanga

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. Sōsaku hanga prints, therefore, mark the departure from traditional ukiyo-e production and aesthetics, and results in highly individualized works, strongly influenced by international trends in art.

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.

Sizes of original Japanese woodblock prints (hangata)

For printing Japanese woodblock prints, there was a simple method to determinate the paper sizes: Standardized sheets got divided into two, three or four parts. A paper size bigger than the full-sized paper got glued together. Even though it seems simple, it is not so easy to name the actual size. Although the full-sized sheets have been standardized, the actual sizes can vary quite a lot. That could have different reasons:
