Hideo Hagiwara Signed Japanese Woodblock Print



Wonderful little print by master printer Hideo Hagiwara who was generally considered one of the finest post-World War II Sosaku Hanga artists. In 1989 he was awarded a Gold Medal by the Nobel Prize Committee for five works produced on themes from the novels of Kawabata Yasunari. This print appears to be artist proof of his Mythology series done in the mid-1960s. Print is pencil signed by the artist. Hideo works can be found in many prominent museums and collections as: Tokyo National Museum of Modern Art Prefectural Museums of Miyagi, Tochigi, Yamanashi, Wakayama, Oita, Toyama, Hiroshima, and Tokushima Kamakura Museum of Modern Art Honolulu Academy of Arts Art Institute of Chicago; Carnegie Museum of Art National Gallery of Art New York Public Library Boston Museum of Fine Arts Cincinnati Art Museum; Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.; Rockefeller Foundation, New York Victoria and Albert Museum, London Amsterdam Museum of Art Sao Paulo Museum of Modern Art Dresden Museums of Modern Art National Gallery of Australia.
