Goyo Studio Reprints - Hashiguchi Goyo is the undisputed master of the 20th century shin-hanga movement. A secondary part of his career was reprinting beautiful old ukiyo-e designs from the golden age of the Japanese woodblock print. In 1920, much of Goyo’s artistic work was devoted to creating these incredible woodblock reprints of classic ukiyo-e prints. Each image was painstakingly copied from an original and stamped with the Goyo circular seal. Line by line, color by color, the prints were recreated in Goyo’s studio to perfectly emulate these masterworks of ukiyo-e. Goyo took pride in this work and the release of his reprints was met with great acclaim.
Today, original Goyo reprints are highly sought after by collectors and rare to find. This is an exceptional opportunity!
The White Surcoat - Fantastic portrait by Utamaro showing a young beauty in an elegant white outer kimono. She kneels on the floor, the fabric swirling around her as she pulls the robe closed. The white kimono is trimmed with a plum tie-dyed print, worn over a red checked under robe tied with a green and white dotted obi. A lovely combination of soft colors and patterns in this attractive design. Detailed with delicate embossing in the kimono.
