Sekka's A World of Things (Momoyogusa)

Sekka's A World of Things (Momoyogusa) - Considered Sekka's greatest masterpiece, "A World of Things" (Momoyogusa) was released in three woodblock volumes in 1909. Unsodo published these beautiful prints using the finest quality printing techniques and embellishments such as mica and embossing. Taking his inspiration from nature and traditional Japanese subjects, Sekka created an outstanding series of strikingly modern designs with bold compositions and simplified shapes. These large format designs are from a later edition by the original publisher, Unsodo, printed from blocks carved during the Meiji era A terrific choice for display.

A Modern Master - Kamisaka Sekka (1866-1942) is regarded as the father of modern design in Japan. Born in Kyoto, Sekka pursued his artistic studies at the age of sixteen and traveled to Europe at the turn of the century. His trip to Europe proved pivotal in developing his aesthetic; studying the European tradition of industrial design, Sekka was influenced by the place of design in everyday life. Sekka became a master of the historic Japanese tradition known as Rinpa, combining this traditional Japanese aesthetic with his own innovations to create stunning designs that are both modern and timeless.

Special detail - Silver mica on the sky.
