As part of the shin hanga or new prints movement in 1907 Takahashi Shōtei started designing for the S. Watanabe Colour Print Co.
Shōtei was the first designer to be recruited into Watanabe's stable of artists. By 1923, Shōtei had produced nearly 500 designs for Watanabe, when Tokyo was hit by the Great Kanto earthquake.
The fires ignited by the earthquake raged for three days and Watanabe's print shop and all the woodblocks created by Shōtei and the other early shin hanga artists were destroyed.
