In the 19th century, a Ukiyo -e was a huge influence on Gogh, Monet, and Roth -Leck, which had been triggered by Japonism, which occurred in Europe, mainly in France. They were astonished at the depiction of Japanese life customs that I had never seen before.

Echizen Japanese paper craftsman/Human national treasure 9th generation Iwano Iwano
Born in Imadachi -cho, Fukui Prefecture (now Echizen City).
In response to the harsh guidance of his father Yatsushiro Iwano Iwano (holder of the important intangible cultural property "Echizen Book") and his uncle, Masao Iwano, he learned the traditional Echizen book production technique.
He is the only engineer who researches traditional techniques deeply and concentrates on straining an Echizen book.

It is said that many print artists have been supported by 300 times, and Picasso also used this book.
The Ukiyo -e tree print is used by a single plate of Yamakura. The cherry blossom timber has a fine grain and excellent durability, and is the best material for woodcuts.
First, attach a cloth to the slope in front and fix the plate tree. Then, on the surface of the plate tree, paste the edition of the version in a thin Japanese paper in turn, and carve it while cutting with a sculpted sword along the ink line that is visible.
For detailed sculptures, a flask containing water, which has the effect of preventing the shadow of the sculpture and focusing light, is proceeded in front of the light bulb.
In the Ukiyo -e -tree print, the painter has colored the school sliding (only ink line), which uses a ink version (a trees engraved only ink), and the sculptor follows the coloring. We will carve the trees with only the number of colors.
A production book (Japanese paper) is indispensable to create a deep -pecedible work of woodcuts, with with dozens of horses.
The dosa pulled Japanese paper is wet with water and begins to slide in order from a light color.
At the bottom right of the plate, there is a clue, and there is an acquaintance in front of the trees, and the master puts paper according to the acquisition and slides color one after another. No matter how many she slides, the position of a skilled sliding master is decided at once.
It can be said that it is the extreme of craftsmanship to overlap many colors from many trees, and to raise the works intended by the artist.
