Fuji Arts’ Kuchi-e Print Clearance Opening at $39
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

The Kuchi-e Tradition - Kuchi-e prints are woodblock frontispiece illustrations used in the publication of Japanese novels and magazines around the turn of the 20th century. Most kuchi-e prints were illustrations of bijin and continued the tradition of idealized beauties in Japanese art. The subjects, however, have a decidedly Meiji era feel about them and reflect the artistic movement towards more western design. Kuchi-e prints typically have one or two folds because of their use.

The Kuchi-e Print Clearance - We’ve accumulated a large number of original kuchi-e prints by different artists and organized them into a clearance group to be offered over a couple weeks.
