KABUKI ACTOR- ICHIKAWA KUENZO I. (Early to mid-19th century). Antique Japanese woodblock prints. This wonderful early-to-mid 19th century Japanese color’u. The colors remain vivid and saturated. The print may have been kept and previously protected in a folio. The image is clear and crisp, superbly rendered and artistically realized. The overall composition of a figure on a wooden balcony, peering over at all below, is compositionally well balanced and seemingly effortlessly accomplished. The deep indigo, cerulean blues, tangerine, melon, olive and charcoal black are wonderfully proportioned, balanced and the piece enjoys saturated, intense color as well as faint washes, illustrating the subtle, master craftsmanship of the artist. The figure stands on a wooden balcony overlooking all below, with two black cranes sweeping across the sky to the left. Abstract paper origami frogs in groups, fantastically float away, as if foreshadowing later Japanese anime art, that was to come afterwards in the 20th century. There are episodes of black or deep charcoal, which populate the image, creating visual interest, excitement, color fluctuation and tonal gradations between darks and lights. Signed by the artist and publisher with black ink stamps in Japanese character calligraphy. Top-shelf, beautiful and simply outstanding. This early/mid-19th century Japanese color woodblock print by the celebrated, famous Japanese woodblock master Utagawa Kunisida (Toyokuni III,) is in very well preserved condition. Utagawa Kunisada / Japanese (1786- 1865) also known as Utagawa Toyokuni III, was the most popular, prolific and financially successful Japanese designer of’ukiyo-e’ woodblock prints of 19th-century Japan. In his own time his reputation far exceeded that of his contemporaries, Hokusai, Hiroshige and Kuniyoshi. This original color woodblock print by Utagawa Kusinada, is from the early-to-mid 19th century, marked with the publisher’s seal, titled & as well with the artist’s signature. Good/Very Good overall vintage condition. The item “UTAGAWA KUNISIDA (JAPAN) 1786-1865 UKIYO-E COLOR WOODBLOCK PRINT OF KABUKI ACTOR” is in sale since Tuesday, March 12, 2019.

I appreciate your courtesy! The condition is described above for more information please check the photos. Print 15.5 inches x 7.75 inches. Mat 22 inches x 13.5 inches. More about the artist. Maki Haku (, 19242000) is the artistic name of Maejima Tadaaki, who was born in Ibaraki Prefecture. He was a ssaku-hanga artist in 20th Century Japan. [1] During World War II, Maejima Tadaaki was trained as a kamikaze pilot in the Japanese air force, but the war ended before he was assigned a mission. [2] Haku had no formal art training, but studied for two years with the ssaku-hanga artist Onchi Kshir (18911955). Two unique qualities of Maki Haku prints are the textures achieved by working the designs in wet cement and the use of Kanji (Chinese characters) as design motifs. [4] In 1962, he started adding texture to his prints. At first, he added texture to the entire sheet after it was printed. In 1965, he began embossing designs into unprinted paper by using a press to transfer a design created in cement on a carved plywood board, and then adding color with stencils. [5][6] He distorted and rearranged the strokes of Chinese characters to produce striking and serene images. For example, Poem 71-91 is a highly stylized representation of the kanji , which is pronounced mu and means nothingness, an important concept in some forms of Buddhism. The artist participated in the Tokyo International Print Biennale in 1957 and 1960. The book Festive Wine: Ancient Japanese Poems from the Kinkafu is a translation of 21 ancient poems called Kinkafu or Music for Wagon Songs. The translation is accompanied by Maki Haku’s prints that were made in 196869. The Art Institute of Chicago, the Cincinnati Art Museum, the Honolulu Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Museum of Modern Art (New York), and the Philadelphia Museum of Art are among the public collections holding prints by Haku Maki[7].

STAMP COLOR WOODBLOCK PRINT OF YOUNG GIRL W/FAN, IN ORIGINAL. THIN-PROFILE SILVER PAINTED WOOD FRAME, W/UNBROKEN. ORIGINAL BROWN PAPER DUST COVER. Japanese Modernist woodblock prints (Showa period). Sta mped on the bottom-right of the face of the print with an original red ink artist’s stamp. It’s also stamped with a black ink gallery stamp on the back brown paper dust cover. The Little Gallery,’ 105 Chestnut Street, Springfield, Massachusetts. 21 ½” Height x 15 ¼” Width (Frame). X 15 ¼” Height x 9 ½ Width (Image). It’s medium-format in size, being nearly 22 inches in height and 16 inches in width. It’s still in its period vintage silver gilt painted wood frame and is under bright olive green, miter-cut mat board, with its orig brown paper back dust cover still intact and unbroken. Pictured is a portrait of a young Japanese girl with hair ribbon bow holding a fan, offering only the’essential’ pictorial information needed to describe her. This conceptually reduced artistic treatment of the subject is in keeping with Japanese Modernist art and in particular, color woodblock prints from Japan’s Showa period. It’s spare and economic in its design and uses only reduced, basic geometric shapes and a very limited color palette to describe them. Very quiet and very, very beautiful. BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE ARTIST. Kaoro Kawano was born in Hokkaido, Japan and studied at the Kawabata Art School beginning in 1934. He was a participant and practitioner during Japan’s’Showa’ period. He had his first color woodblock prints accepted by the Japan Print Association in 1944. By the 1950′s he began to exhibit more frequently in shows around the world. None of his prints, not even his (apparently early) limited edition prints however, are dated. His reputation became international, with successful solo exhibitions in North America and elsewhere. Kawano’s prints frequently depict children and animals, combining Western style elements with the old tradition of woodblock printmaking. Kawano’s works are also appreciated for the way in which they incorporate the grain patterns of the woodblock into the design. Excellent, pristine, nearly immaculate over a ll vint a ge condition. Without blemishes, tears, paper loss, water stains, foxing, tanning or other surface conditions or damage. It’s in its original, vintage, thin-profile silver gilt painted period wood frame, is matted and under glass. In really exceptionally well-preserved overall vintage condition.
