Yuyudo Publisher - In the early 20th century, the Yuyudo publishing house had already distinguished themselves as one of the finest publishers in Japan. They adhered to the same exacting standards of 19th century publishers while some of their publishing colleagues took shortcuts. In the 1950's, as interest Edo era woodblock prints was reigniting, Yuyudo embarked upon a project to produce reprints by the great masters from the Golden Age of Ukiyo-e. They hired the finest woodblock printers and carvers in the world for this endeavor. The resulting prints were some of the highest quality reproductions ever made. We are pleased to offer this beautiful reprint from the Yuyudo publisher in our auctions today.  Yuyudo prints are exceptionally well done and very finely printed. Each bears a Yuyudo Publisher stamp on the margin or reverse. Bid now on prints from this fantastic collection!

Hinazuru of the Chojiya - Charming portrait of Hinazuru of the Chojiya, holding the handle of a fan between her palms, her fingertips delicately pressed together. She looks ahead with a sweet, somewhat distracted expression, as if her thoughts are somewhere else. She wears a lavender kimono over a red under robe, tied with a green brocade obi. The fan features a spray of pink flowers and curving grasses, with delicate embossing to indicate the ribs. A lovely design, not often seen in reprint.
