Mt. Ibuki in Snow, 1920 - Lovely view of Mt. Ibuki in winter. A river in softly shaded blue zigzags across the bottom, framed by tall pines on either side. A heavy snowfall blankets the trees and land, with Mt. Ibuki in white against the wintry gray sky. This is a rare original Goyo, published by Watanabe with publisher's seal within image at lower right. A great shin-hanga design.
Hashiguchi Goyo - Hashiguchi Goyo is one of the most famous and admired artists of 20th century Japanese woodblocks. He is sometimes referred to as the "Taisho Utamaro" as his incredible designs of women reached heights never seen again in 20th century woodblock prints. Goyo died unexpectedly in 1921 at age 41. His output was, therefore, very limited and his prints are incredibly rare. Goyo's prints were done before the Great Kanto Earthquake in 1923. The devastation of the earthquake hit the woodblock print artists and publishers very hard and many prints and wood blocks were destroyed in the quake and ensuing fires. Original Goyo prints are some of the most sought after woodblock print images in the market today.
