Original Gekko (1859 - 1920) Japanese Woodblock Print
Sakaki, Chapter 10
Series; Fifty-four Chapters of the Tale of Genji, 1893

Gekko's Fifty-four Chapters of the Tale of Genji - Handsome woodblock from Gekko's beautiful series, "Fifty-four Chapters of the Tale of Genji."

These wonderful prints feature scenes of upper-class courtly life, beautifully drawn with flowing calligraphic lines and soft colors. Gekko's images are a unique union of traditional subjects and a modern artistic sensibility. These fine woodblocks have a distinct sense of personality and the beautiful settings reflect the classic landscape and architecture of life in the Heian era. A great interpretation of this timeless tale, Gekko's Genji prints are a wonderful choice to collect or display.
