Shin Nigao Magazine - Fantastic kabuki print from the short-lived 1915 shin-hanga publication "Shin Nigao," or "New Portraits," a magazine featuring contemporary actor portraits by a variety of artists. Meant to revive interest in kabuki theater and showcase the talents of shin-hanga designers, each issue included several small prints, many based on simple line drawings with a sense of immediacy similar to sketches. Many important woodblock artists contributed designs, including Natori Shunsen and Yamamura Toyonari. The magazine lasted for only five issues, though, so prints from the series are rare. The images in this group are still attached along the top edge to the original magazine page with printed identification below. These terrific woodblocks are a wonderful choice for a shin-hanga collector or kabuki enthusiast.
