Description

Although mezzotint is primarily a European technique, Hamanishi’s work is traditionally Japanese in many respects. The use of gold, which emphasizes the flatness of the scene and adds a wonderful decorative element, began in Japanese printmaking in the late 17th century. One hundred years earlier, gold paper served as a background for folding screens (see examples in gallery 121), also referenced in the tripartite arrangement of Division-Work No. 100.
