The female image is a comprehensive survey of the genre of bijinga ('prints of beautiful woman') produced for the shin hanga ('new print') tradition that evolved in the early 20th century. This bilingual (Japanese/English) publication is lavishly illustrated with works from Japanese, European and American public and private collections. Included are not only prints by major artists such as Ito Shinsui (1898-1972), Hashiguchi Goyo (1880-1921) and Torii Kotondo (1900-76) but also examples from more obscure print designers which have rarely been reproduced. An essay by Shinji Hamanaka of the Yamatane Museum of Art, Tokyo regarding the concept of bijinga and by Amy Reigle Newland on the appreciation of shin hanga in the West provides further insight into aspects of bijinga and shin hanga.
