Arashiyama, Kyoto by Chikanobu (1838 - 1912)

Original Chikanobu (1838 - 1912) Japanese Woodblock Print
Arashiyama, Kyoto
Series; Comparison of Famous Sites and Beautiful Women, circa 1897 - 1898

Comparison of Famous Sites and Beautiful Women - Chikanobu's circa 1897 - 1898 diptych series "Comparison of Famous Sites and Beautiful Women" features beauties set against distant landscapes. The large foreground figures are rendered in full color, while the background is done primarily in tones of blue, a technique known as aizuri-e, that is unusual in Chikanobu's work. These lovely designs are elegantly drawn with careful detail in the fabrics, fine line work in the hair, and soft pink shading around the eyes. Some include deluxe treatments such as burnishing or embossing. Eleven prints from the series are known, and some are illustrated in Bruce Coats's book "Chikanobu: Modernity and Nostalgia in Japanese Prints." We rarely come across designs from this striking series.

Special detail - Embossing on the white kimono collar.
