Hot Spring Inn- The young beauty, a waitress at the elegant teahouse in the Hot Spring Inn, enjoys a private moment at the balcony. The design is wonderful with an almost monochromatic treatment of the figure except for her lips and just a hint of her silk obi. Behind her is a colorful backdrop of flowers and foliage. The background is a rich gray/rose that shimmers with a silvery mica finish. The soft colors, fine embossing, heavy paper and careful attention to detail reflect the quality of this print.

This is truly a Japanese woodblock masterpiece. This image is one of the most sought after prints in the market.

Artist Bio: A Note on the 1970's/80's restrikes:

Tanseisha edition:

One of the 12-print sets, titled "Hashiguchi Goyo 60-Year Memorial) was published in an edition size of only 150 and is dated 1981, December 1st. I assume this to be the first edition by Tanseisha. It is obvious that Tanseisha subsequently published other sets after this date, using different printers. One of these later editions included an extra print, so a 13-print edition.

Yuyudo editions:

A 6-print set of bijin-ga in blue canvas tatou album with edition size of 750.

A 12-print edition, size unconfirmed.

A 2-print set of large-size scenes "Hand Mirror" and "Yabakei" with edition size of around 500.


Iwasaki Shoten:

Published "Woman Combing Her Hair" in an edition size of 180 in 1988, October 20 (see database entry 46012).

Watanabe Shoichiro: Watanabe has recently (2017 or earlier) started publishing some of the Goyo scenes.
