Original Hishida Shunso (1874 - 1911) Japanese Woodblock Print

Series; Masterpieces of Modern Japan

Masterpieces of Modern Japan - Published by Tanseisha of Kyoto, the series "Masterpieces of Modern Japan" features woodblocks based on paintings by 20th century shin-hanga and modern artists. These beautiful, large format prints are rendered with exceptional attention to detail, capturing the nuances of calligraphic brushwork and lovely gradations of color. Each print was released in a limited edition, with numbers of impressions varying from 90 to 120 per design, althought the prints are not individually numbered. Images from this series are rarely seen outside Japan, and are a wonderful choice to collect or display.

Wind - Lovely view of trees blowing in the wind, the softly shaded contours suggesting the movement of the branches. Several white birds fly past, seemingly buffeted by the breeze. A handsome, painterly design in a large format that would make an attractive framed display.

This presentation - This print comes in a handsome presentation format as originally issued. The print is loose within a windowed paper mat that slides into a gray outer folder with the series title on it, accompanied by a text page in Japanese with a brief commentary on the work. Rare to find and a nice choice for a collector.
