hamaguchi's color mezzotints

£60.00

Product description

Yozo Hamaguchi (1909 - 2000) was a Japanese artist particularly known for his mezzotint engravings - a technique taught to him by E. E. Cummings while they were both living in Paris. He is widely regarded as one of the finest mezzotint artists in the history of the medium. While historically mezzotints were black and white, Hamaguchi developed innovative methods of creating color mezzotints. The mezzotints are prefaced by a biography of the artist and an analysis of his works by Yvonne Hagen. Also contains an appendix about the technique of mezzotint itself.

This lovely collection was published in 1976 by the Nantenshi Gallery (Tokyo). One of 2000 limited edition copies, it includes 53 actual size mezzotints and 70 plates total. A rare edition complete with slipcase.
Some wear to spine (please see photos) but otherwise in very good condition!
