Original Japanese Lithography Print (Meiji Period)

Artist: Miyagawa Shuntei

Format: Kuchi-e( approx: 18cmx11,5cm),

Conditions: Fine colors and impression . Light toning and slight soiling, as is common in these Kuchi-e pieces. Backed.The print is folded vertically (now flattened) as are all kuchi-e prints (because of their use), so this is not a negative. The print is exactly as the pictures.So please, look attentively the picture. Thank you.


The work is a Kuchi-e print by Shuntei. He was an important woodblock printmaker of the Meiji Period. His specialty was kuchi-e prints and illustrations for books. We can feel the influence of the tradition in the print. Kuchi-e are woodblock-printed frontispiece illustrations produced for publication in Japanese novels and literary magazines at the turn-of-the-century (1895-1912). This print represents a standing beauty holding an umbrella.
