Japanese Woodblock Surimono Print by Gototei Kunisada. Class A. 1890s

Brian Page Antiques Brighton Chinese Japanese Antiques & Antiquities. All images on one page – no multiple clicking or pop-ups! Scroll down to view. If you have any questions, please ask. A Fine Japanese Woodblock Surimono Print by Gototei Kunisada. 7 1/8 x 8 5/8 ins. (18.3 x 21 cms) As surimono were produced in small editions for specific purposes e. New Year cards, poetry club circulars etc. The originals are very rare and very expensive. In the Meiji era ca. 1890 many were reprinted, usually known as Akashi reprints, after the town at which they were produced. Recent research into these reprints has divided them into A, B, C & D categories in descending order of quality, A being the finest and comparable in quality to the originals. The present example is an A class print. Many of the less fine categories have been simplified for reasons of economy, e. Often the poem in the top section is omitted and the range of colours and metallic pigments is reduced. This fine design by Kunisada was originally published ca. It is a portrait of Yang Guifei, a favourite but corrupt concubine of an 8th. Century Tang Dynasty Chinese Emperor. Eventually she caused a rebellion and was hung from a pear tree. The original printing is illustrated in colour and fully described with translations of the poems in Sebastian Izzard’s seminal work Kunisada’s World (1993). The print is in excellent condition with no damage and no repairs. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO SEE ALL PHOTOGRAPHS.
