Kanzashi (Hair Ornaments), 1969 - Terrific modern image of an oiran or high ranking courtesan with floral kanzashi or hair ornaments adorning her hair. Avant-garde artist Ushio Shinohara produced a series of silkscreens of three oiran after seeing Edo era woodblock prints of beauties. These bold designs reflect the influence of American Pop Art, and became some of Shinohara's most well-known images. He is perhaps best known for his boxing paintings, created by dipping boxings gloves in paint and punching the pigment onto canvas or paper. Shinohara exhibits internationally, and his works are in the collections of many museums, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Modern, London, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. A great opportunity to collect a limited edition print by Shinohara.
