|Shiro Kasamatsu ranks among the top ten Shin Hanga artists. He was born in 1896 and given the name Shiro (though with different kanji characters to those used on his prints). Kasamatsu studied Japanese-style paintings with Kaburagi Kiyochika, whose encouragement led Kasamatsu to begin designing woodblock prints for Watanabe in 1919. He published many prints with Watanabe in the 1930s and subsequently published many more with Unsodo from 1952 to 1959. In the 1960s he finished his affiliations with publishers and began self-carving and self-printing woodblock prints in the Sosaku Hanga style.
