Shigenobu (1787 - 1832) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Woman Weaving Surimono

A Fuji Arts special offer auction

Surimono - Surimono are an exclusive subcategory of Japanese woodblock prints. Poetry clubs commissioned these designs for distribution to a small audience of members, most often as New Year's greetings. These privately published images included a wonderful range of subjects and lavish printing techniques such as embossing, burnishing, and metallic pigments. Since surimono were not sold commercially, the print runs were very small and original Edo era surimono are incredibly rare in the market today. These fine quality suriomono reprints offer a great way to collect these classic designs at an affordable price.

Woman Weaving Surimono - Interesting surimono print of a young woman weaving at a large loom. She concentrates on her task, the shuttle in one hand and her sleeves tied back with sashes to keep them out of the way. A handsome design with wonderful detail.

Artist - Shigenobu (1787 - 1832)

Image Size - 8 1/8" x 7"

Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Backed with paper. Slight toning and soiling, small indented stain. Please see photos for details.
