Notes (this edition)?The following information was taken from the original web listing of this artwork. Often written by non-experts, there may be inaccuracies:

You are bidding on a Japanese woodblock print “Woman Dressing” signed by the famous Shin-Hanga artist Hashiguchi Goyo (1880-1921). It says May Taisho 9 (1924) above the artist’s signature at the lower left side of the print close to the border. This woodblock print is a part of a large number of Asian art and Japanese woodblock print collections in my family. We are gradually selling them. The size of this woodblock print is 20 1/4 x 8 1/4 inches. The colors, which are vivid and vibrant, are in layers. This woodblock print is not attached to any backing paper or cardboard. Ink bleeding can be seen through the back of the Japanese mulberry Washi paper. All four borders are intact. There are chop marks in the lower left border, which describes the publisher, carver, and printer. There is also a hand-writing in ink 164/180 underneath the chop marks. I guess this is the 164th print out of total 180. There is a crease horizontally across the upper middle of the print, on the woman’s breast. Except this, there are no defects, foxing, or stains. This woodblock print is in excellent condition. I am not sure about the age of this print because Taisho 9 was 79 years ago.

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.
