Pair of Kiyoshi Saito Japanese Woodblock Prints Geisha 1960 Modern Master

Pair of smaller woodblock prints of a geisha in pose by Japanese modern master Kiyoshi Saito. Professionally framed, matted and protected under glass. One of the prints is signed in a silver ink below his seal, other one is in black but not sure if hand signed. Hard to take photographs due to reflection. Frames measure 13 1/4 x 11 inches. Woodblock print shown measures 6 1/4 x 4 3/4 inches. Kiyoshi Saito was born on April 27, 1907 in Aizubange, Fukushima, Japan on the main island of Honshu. When he was five years old, his father lost his business in Fukushima and the family moved further north to the island of Hokkaido, where his father worked in the coal mines in Otaru. When he was thirteen years old, his mother died and he was sent away to become the guardian of a buddhist temple. He tried to escape but failed. Nevertheless the priests allowed him to return home. Saito then went to Hokkaido, where he took on a sign painting apprenticeship. At that time he dreamed of becoming a painter and he began to sketch on gypsum casts at night. He founded his first sign painting business before his twentieth birthday and ensured himself a living and modest financial success. He reluctantly abandoned it, however, to study art in Tokyo. For the time being he was content with studying illustrations in western newspapers. In 1932 Kiyoshi Saito moved to Tokyo. He first worked as a sign painter and then later from 1944 until 1954 as an employee of the Asahi Newspaper Company. The job however was a secondary matter. More importantly, Saito came into close contact with the printmaker Shiko Munakata. He continued to paint with oils and taught himself the technques of color woodblock printing. In 1937 he exhibited both oils and woodcuts for the first time in the famous Kokugakai Exhibition and was highly motivated when he met Ono Tadashige at the Ginza Exhibition in 1939. The acquaintance with the artist Koshiro Onchi himself and mentor of the sosaku hanga movement soon opened doors to galleries, where most notably American purchasers took an interest in Saito’s work. He became best known as a sosaku hanga printmaker in mid 20th century. Saito’s early works depicted villages that were populated by local Japanese men and women with a great degree of realism and three-dimensionality. He became most famous for his “Winter in Aizu” series of woodcuts, and he was one of the first Japanese printmaking artists to have won a prize at the Sao Paulo Biennale in 1951, opening up new doors for sosaku hanga printmakers, who had been dismissed as too western in Japan. After the Biennale his career took off, both in Japan and internationally. His later work merged modern elements of modernism, cubism, abstraction, and impressionism with Japanese tradition, after having been influenced by famous modern artists such as Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Wassily Kandinsky, Paul Gauguin, and Edvard Munch. Kiyoshi Saito died in Japan on November 14, 1997. The item “Pair of Kiyoshi Saito Japanese Woodblock Prints Geisha 1960 Modern Master” is in sale since Monday, October 14, 2019.

This image is, in my view, the best from that series. The color woodblock measures 15 1/2 inches by 10 1/4 inches (image size), and is printed on a full sheet measuring a total of 16 3/4 inches by 11 1/4 inches. The print is signed in pencil by Saito at the left of the image, where there is also a red chop mark. The print is not laid down, and the image retains its fresh and vivid colors. The only condition issues I can find are a tiny 1/8 inch tear at the left margin (not entering the image) and some paper residue (from an earlier matting) around the edges of the sheet, where the mat was glued down. The mat residue just enters into the edges of the image in several places, mostly at the bottom (see photos 10 and 11).
