Hana Hasegawa - wood-block print
by Zokyudo Gallery
Location: Zokyudo Gallery
Date: 1 Sep - 14 Sep 2013

Regardless of the east and the west, many artists have expressed a beauty of woman in goddess or prostitute for their ideal. Ukiyo-e of beauties also got a great attention.
Hasegawa's wood print uses a fine line and vivid color, which looks like illustration but focuses on Ukiyo-e.
However, unlike a painting of beauties, a woman in Hasegawa's art work is not an idea type, but shows a will of woman. Away from idea, showing women's independence is the contemporary painting of beauties.
