Goyo Studio Reprints - Hashiguchi Goyo is the undisputed master of the 20th century shin-hanga movement. A secondary part of his career was reprinting beautiful old ukiyo-e designs from the golden age of the Japanese woodblock print. In 1920, much of Goyo’s artistic work was devoted to creating these incredible woodblock reprints of classic ukiyo-e prints. Each image was painstakingly copied from an original and stamped with the Goyo circular seal. Line by line, color by color, the prints were recreated in Goyo’s studio to perfectly emulate these masterworks of ukiyo-e. Goyo took pride in this work and the release of his reprints was met with great acclaim.
Today, original Goyo reprints are highly sought after by collectors and rare to find. This is an exceptional opportunity!
Comments - Charming scene of a beauty riding in a palanquin, stopping for a break under a blossoming cherry tree. She taps tobacco into the bowl of a slender pipe, her attendant waiting nearby with a burning length of cord to light the pipe. Wonderful fine line work in this attractive print. Nicely colored.
