Original Shin-hanga & Modern artist (not read) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty with a Fan Woodblock and Key Block Set
Comments - Lovely shin-hanga portrait of a beauty holding a fan decorated with a kabuki actor, along with a key block impression of the design. She looks over her shoulder with a slight smile, her hair pulled back into a large bun with smooth wings at the sides of her face, adorned with a comb, hairpins, and pink ribbons. The background is softly shaded, and the fan features embossed lines. It is rare to find key block impressions, and this one is printed in dark gray rather than black. A beautiful image and a nice choice for a collector.
