ORIGINAL AND AUTHENTIC "MAIKO VIEWING CHERRY BLOSSOMS AT GION" WOODBLOCK PRINT BY MINEUCHI KOSETSU FROM CIRCA 1924Here's a RARE shin hanga woodblock print by Mineuchi Kosetsu (active 1920's) entitled "Maiko Viewing Cherry Blossoms at Gion" from my personal collection. It measures 11" x 16 1/8" (image 10 1/2" x 15 3/8") and it depicts two maiko (geisha in training) walking in a cherry orchard during the evening. They're wearing beautiful kimonos and their pink floral headresses, included in their coiffure, are echoed in the abundant cherry blossoms from the tree. There's a large traditional Japanese lantern superimposed into the cherry tree which emanates light across the top section of the composition. This contrived light source lights up the beautiful faces and colorful kimonos of the two maiko. Their human forms are contrasted by the darkness of the foreground in this night scene. The verso has two publisher red seals one of which is partially covered by a small inventory sticker (see close-up photo). This RARE shin hanga woodblock print is in good condition for being about 94 years old. The colors are vibrant and have good detail. The top and side edges are rough-cut with minor edge wear. There's a microscopic foxing dot at the top-left margin area (3/8" into the image). It has minor handling creases including a very faint crease on the upper-right side from the right maiko's head going up to the border. The verso has some ink splatter, marks and hand-written pencil notations not visible on the front. None of these imperfections detract. Please see photos for condition. This ORIGINAL and AUTHENTIC shin hanga woodblock print from circa 1924 will mat and frame nicely!
