Beauty from Meiji 15 (1882): Light Snowfall, circa 1931 by Kiyokata Kaburagi (1886 - 1972)

Original Kiyokata Kaburagi (1886 - 1972) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty from Meiji 15 (1882): Light Snowfall, circa 1931

Comments - Lovely shin-hanga design of a beauty during a light snowfall, with just a few large flakes drifting down against the pale gray sky. She fastens the loop of a veil over her ear as she looks up at the snow. This beautiful subject was issued as a special insert by the Jiji Newspaper Company in a limited edition of around 150 prints to celebrate the paper's fiftieth anniversary. Beautifully drawn with a sweetly expressive face. A very rare image from a series depicting beauties from different time periods, here a woman from Meiji 15 (1882). A great choice for a collector interested in shin-hanga prints.

Image Size - 14" x 9 1/8" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Horizontal and diagonal folds. Small hole, repaired. Light spotting, slight creasing. Please see photos for details.
