Asai Hidemi Learned her painting from master Ito Shinshu was specialized in bijin-ga (woodblock print of beauties). Asai Hidemi was mainly a traditional Japanese painter so she did not create many bijin-ga prints before she died. The designs of her woodblock prints have an individual style and are something special - and beautiful. Because of these reasons, her Bijin-ga woodblock prints are hard to find and are highly priced all over the world. The information of Asai Hidemi and her woodblock prints can be easily found on any search engine. Her woodblock prints are hard to find and sell for thousand dollars in the galleries in Japan. The size of this woodblock print is 19 ½ x 16 1/4 inches, which is MUCH LARGER than the traditional Shin-Hanga woodblock prints. The colors, which are vivid and vibrant, are in layers. This woodblock print is not attached any backing paper or cardboard. Ink bleeding can be seen through the back of the original Japanese mulberry Washi paper. All four borders are intact. The artist’s signature and his chop mark are at the lower left corner of the print while the title of the print “Maiko Fan Dance”, the limited number “206/350”, the artist’s chop mark, publisher, carver and printer’s chop marks are in the right border.
