Near the end of the 19th century, Japanese artists went through fundamental changes as new theories were introduced from the Western world. The exhibition presents examples of shin hanga and sosaku hanga woodblock prints side-by-side to illuminate their shared aspects, as well as their distinguishing characteristics.
