After Bathing (Yokugo) by Ito Shinsui (1898 - 1972)

Original Ito Shinsui (1898 - 1972) Japanese Woodblock Print
After Bathing (Yokugo)

Fuji Arts’ special acquisition from Momose - This print is from a beautiful group of limited edition prints recently acquired from the archives of the publisher, The Momose Print Company of Tokyo. We purchased the entire balance of the publisher’s limited-edition inventory of all designs. They are only available on the secondary market and have become increasingly difficult to find. The prints were originally offered in a shin-hanga limited edition promotion from Momose. The Shinsui and Kaburagi beauties were sold for 280,000 yen each (approx. $2,750).

Comments - Lovely portrait of a beauty after a bath, wringing the water out of a cloth over a small bucket. She wears a blue and white summer cotton kimono, her hair pulled softly backed into a large bun. A beautiful, atmospheric image, rendered in a very painterly style. Published by Momose as part of a small group of woodblock designs based on Shinsui's paintings. A charming, classic beauty design by Shinsui.

Artist - Ito Shinsui (1898 - 1972)
Image Size - 18" x 14 7/8" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. A couple light creases at edges. Please note, due to the size, this print may be shipped rolled. A couple light creases at edges, a few small marks in margin. Please see photos for details. Nice overall.
