Original Tadamasa Ueno (1904 - 1970) Japanese Woodblock Print
May: Lion in the Play Ren Jishi

Series; Calendar of Kabuki Roles and Actors, 1950

Calendar of Kabuki Roles and Actors - Fantastic portrait by Tadamasa Ueno from a calendar series depicting actors for each month of the year. Published by Shokokusha in 1950, these bold designs feature incredibly expressive figures, the compositions often dramatically cropped to focus on the facial features and hairstyles. Rendered with strong calligraphic strokes and vivid color, these images bring the spectacular world of kabuki to life. A rarely seen series by Tadamasa Ueno and a terrific choice for a kabuki or shin-hanga enthusiast.
