A Japanese Woodblock Print Hashiguchi Goyo Nude Woman after Bath
This is AN EXTRA LARGE very beautiful and rare Japanese Shin Hanga woodblock print “Nude Woman after Bath” from the famous Shin-Hanga woodblock print artist Hashiguchi Goyo (1880-1921) published by the famous printmaker YuYuDo IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. This woodblock print is one of the core collections of a large number of Asian art and Japanese woodblock print collections in my family and we are gradually selling them. To see more on my family Japanese woodblock print and Asian art collection, please search for shinhangagallery.com on Google or enter shinhangagallery.com in your browser’s address bar. The exact same print can be found on the following site http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goy%C5%8D_Hashiguchi. Because Goyo died at age 41, he only made 14 woodblock prints in all his life, and most of them were destroyed by fire, weather and earthquake including the woodblocks. Goyo was one of the most famous and gifted artists during the Taisho (1910-1925) Era in Japan. The artist’s signature, his chop mark, the title of the print “Nude woman after Bath” and the date of the print “July Taisho 9 (1921)” are close to the lower left edge of the print. The publisher YuYuDo chop mark, carver and printer’s chop marks are in the back of the left edge of the print. The size of the print is 18 x 11 3/4 inches, which is MUCH LARGER than the traditional Shin Hanga woodblock print. The colors, which are vivid and vibrant, are in layers. This woodblock print is not attached to any backing paper or cardboard and strong ink bleeding can be seen through the back of the original Japanese mulberry paper. All four borders are intact.
