: The best reference work on Japanese 20th century prints, that I have in my own library, is Helen Merritt's and Nanako Yamada's Guide to Modern Japanese Woodblock Prints: 1900-1975 (University of Hawaii Press 1992, paperback edition 1995).
: I also believe that The New Wave, edited by Amy Reigle Stephens (London 1992) is a very useful source of information, though I have never seen it. It is out of print and rather difficult to find, but I believe it is well worth looking for.
: As for the value of these reproductions, I have no idea at all. Perhaps someone else, who reads this, can comment on it?
: By the way, thanks for your contribution on Frank Lloyd Wright, Philip.
Another book worth looking at is:
Brown, K.H. & Goodall-Cristante, H. Shin-Hanga: New Prints in Modern Japan. Los Angeles County Museum of Art, 1996
It has some information on Watanabe, but other publishers are mentioned only briefly.
If you visit my web site (which came into existance two days ago) you
will find a list of references dealing with twentieth century Japanese
prints. You might find something useful there.
I'm afraid I can't help with values either.
