Shotei Takahashi (Hiroaki)


In 1907, as a successful artist, he was recruited by Shozaburo Watanabe to contribute to the Shin-hanga (New Prints) art movement in Japan. Watanabe helped to fulfill the Western demand for ukiyo-e woodblock prints which would be similar to familiar historical masters of that genre. In the early 1920s, Shotei added the artistic name of Hiroaki. In 1923, the Great Kanto earthquake (and subsequent fire) destroyed Watanabe's facilities; this included all Shin-hanga woodblocks. Thus, Shotei recreated prior designs destroyed in the Great Kanto earthquake and also continued to produce new woodblocks.
