Seller: ukiarts (334) 100%, Location: Colorado Springs, Colorado, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 382937986658 Normal 0 false false false EN-US JA X-NONE Very elegant and lovely print from rare commemorative limited edition. 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. This beautiful print is from the Yuyudo commemorative limited edition. 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 of paint the geishas, waitress and maids of his era. The subject of this portrait is the “maiko”, or apprentice geisha, Chiyofuku of Gion, Kyoto. She is styled wearing her ornate red and blue maiko headpiece as she gazes intently into her mirror while applying her red lip rouge. A shimmering pink mica background beautifully sets off her image. This lovely print would be a wonderful choice for the collector and the 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.
