Japan’s appetite for European and American art intensified during the American occupation after World War II. Western ideas spread quickly, facilitating change. For instance, while it had been customary for Japanese printmakers to be trained through apprenticeships, the younger generation was exposed to a wide range of techniques and styles in the Americanized art curricula developing at universities. Etching, mezzotint, and lithography, originally rare in Japan, became increasingly popular as Westerners discovered--and created markets for--contemporary Japanese prints.
