Thirty Great Loyalists of Early Modern Times - This interesting shin-hanga series features portraits of noted Japanese loyalists by several different artists. All include an embossed seal in the margin reading "Kinno Bunka Shinko-kai" or "Society for Promotion of Loyalist Culture," which may have commissioned the series. Some, but not all, of the prints have an embossed Watanabe Publisher "F" seal in the margin, so the series likely dates circa 1934 - 1941, although it is not known if Watanabe published all the designs in the group. We have seen very few examples from this series before. This design features Gamo Kunpei, who researched and compiled a record of Imperial tombs in 1808. An unusual series, beautifully printed.
