Work by Yozo Hamaguchi
Japanese fine artist, Yozo Hamaguchi (1909-2000), is the father of the color mezzotint printmaking process, the world’s most difficult form of printmaking. In his early years, Hamaguchi studied in Paris, France where he pursued sculpture and painting. There, he met the American poet, E.E. Cummings who gave the artist his first set of mezzotint tools. Hamaguchi is heralded as the finest mezzotint artist in the history of the medium. Today, a comprehensive collection is housed in Tokyo’s Musée Hamaguchi Yozo, and in the homes of the world’s most famous art collectors.
