Gosho Doll Prints - Charming design of traditional Japanese Gosho dolls, which typically represent chubby, cute babies with very white skin, in Noh theater roles from a series published in 1931. In Japan, Gosho dolls are widely popular and considered a classic form of art. These delightful woodblock prints show the dolls striking poses onstage in elegant costumes. Delicate patterning, sophisticated coloring, and embellishments such as silver and gold mica beautifully capture the sumptuous Noh costumes worn by the dolls. Carefully drawn with fine line work and attractive color, these playful, large format designs are a great choice for display. This print includes silver mica on the blade and on the scroll at upper right.
