Seller: ukiarts (334) 100%, Location: Colorado Springs, Colorado, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 223506093345 Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE Hashiguchi Goyo, Japanese 1880-1921, was one the renowned Shin-hanga woodblock print artists of the early 20th century. Unfortunately, he died very young, at only 41 years old. First edition prints of Goyo’s works are very expensive. The original blocks for his works were destroyed in the great earthquake of 1923. Fortunately, in the mid 20th century his heirs gave two of Japan’s finest woodblock printers, Tanseisha and Yuyudo, permission to publish very small limited commemorative editions of his masterworks. The prints from these editions were skillfully printed from meticulously recarved blocks and are of the highest quality. Instead of following in the footsteps of the earlier ukiyo-e artists who most often chose their models from the famous courtesans of their time, Goyo preferred to paint the geishas, waitresses and maids of his era. This lovely model is Nakatani Tsuru, a restaurant waitress and a favorite poser for Goyo. She is shown sitting on a red patterned cushion looking directly at the viewer, apparently in a pensive mood. She has a light, transparent summer kimono loosely draped around her. The print has lovely color and fine soft mica detail. This exquisite print would be a wonderful choice for the collector or interior decorator. It would be striking displayed on your home or office wall. Goyo’s masterworks are in the collections of many of the world’s great museums. Among them are the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; and the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago. ARTIST: Hashiguchi Goyo, Japanese 1880-1921.
