Summary

Goyo Hashiguchi was born in a Shijo-style painter's family. Goyo began his painting at age 10, moving to Tokyo in 1899 to study with Gaho Hashimoto. Unlike many Shin Hanga print artists, Goyo established his own workshop. His standards were so high that he rarely allowed his editions to run more than eighty prints. This decision resulted in some of the most technically superb woodblock prints to be produced since the late 18th century. Goyo’s entire artistic career spanned 15 short years, of which only the last five were spent producing prints. At the forefront of the shin-hanga movement, a revival of ukiyo-e, he designed fourteen woodblock prints which are regarded as masterpieces of the genre. At his death, Goyo Hashiguchi left many works in various stages of completion. Members of his family completed these designs following his death.
