Printer: Yoneda Kurazo 米田蔵造
With the permission of Goyo's heirs, publisher Tanseisha produced a few small commemorative editions - limited to 150 copies. These reprints were made according to the exact same standards as the originals. Expert woodcarvers were contracted and they produced woodblocks of the highest quality. The printers then made the reprints with the same attention to quality and detail as the originals. These magnificent reprints, printed on handmade paper, have the same colours and mica details as the originals.
Hashiguchi Goyo is one of the most famous Japanese woodblock print artists of the 20th century. Goyo only lived to be 41 years old and his output is very limited (11 "bijin-ga", 4 landscapes, 1 "kacho-e"). His prints are extremely rare. Original Goyo prints are some of the most sought after woodblock print images nowadays, and very valuable. The prints from the commemorative editions are also rare and only sporadically available on the market.
Impression: Really fantastic bokashi shading. Very realistic reflections in the water. Detailed "carving" and "printing", great attention to detail. Excellent colours. A perfect duplication of Goyo's original.
The print is sold with its original presentation folder. The print is stored in a beautiful inner folder enclosed in paper and protective lining and a sturdy outer folder. See photos 19-22
