Tale of Genji Set of 3 Lithograph Reproductions - Interesting set of three lithograph reproductions of scenes from the "Tale of Genji" scroll in the Gotoh Museum. Painted between 1120 - 1140, the scroll is the oldest example of a "monogatari emaki" or illustrated narrative handscroll. Each image is mounted along the top edge to lightweight paperboard, with a tissue paper overlay that folds over the image. The museum's name and the scroll title are printed in kanji on the backing board beneath the image. A nice way to acquire imagery from this historically and artistically important work. Please note, these are lithograph reproductions, not woodblock prints. Published in 1972.
