Fully reviewing the career of a major figure in the development of modern printmaking in Japan, this catalogue features reproductions of more than 200 figurative, narrative and landscape-based woodcuts by Munakata (1903-1975), works grounded in Japanese graphic and decorative art traditions that also reflect the influence of such Western styles as German Expressionism. A biographical essay and two brief overviews of Munakata's achievements are supplemented with three reprinted homages to the artist, a selection of his writings, and commentaries on many of the featured series.
