Oishi Matora (1792 - 1833) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
An Old Painting of the Courtesan Yugiri in the Tajiro Collection, Copied by Matora

Surimono - Surimono are an exclusive subcategory of Japanese woodblock prints. Poetry clubs commissioned these designs for distribution to a small audience of members, most often as New Year's greetings. These privately published images included a wonderful range of subjects and lavish printing techniques such as embossing, burnishing, and metallic pigments. Since surimono were not sold commercially, the print runs were very small and original Edo era surimono are incredibly rare in the market today. These fine quality suriomono reprints offer a great way to collect these classic designs at an affordable price.

Comments - Attractive surimono design of the courtesan Yugiri sitting on the floor reading, an open book on her lap. She looks over her shoulder as she adjusts a hairpin, her hair pulled back into large knot with a forelock falling to the side of her face. Her kimono is made of a patchwork of patterns, including large kanji characters, delicate leaves, and spider webs. Beautifully detailed, with allover cloth embossing on the background, an embossed pattern on the black lacquer stand, and accents of metallic pigment that have oxidized to a dark tone.

Image Size - 7 3/8" x 6 1/4" + margins as shown
