Original 20th century Japanese Woodblock Print
Festival Lanterns and Other Designs
From the Uchida Publisher Archives - We were fortunate to purchase a wonderful collection of 20th century prints directly from the archives of the Uchida Art Company of Kyoto. The classic 20th century prints offered in our auction from this collection are all first edition prints of various designs released by the Uchida company in the mid-20th century. These first edition prints are unusual to come by in a nice group as they were generally sold off as they were produced. This excellent collection was held back and recently sold from the Uchida archives. These prints are a nice opportunity to collect a lovely 20th century print, or perfect as reasonably priced gifts. Don't miss out on these prints, once they sell out, we won't have them again!
Comments - Interesting uncut print featuring four small designs. The upper left image shows rows of softly glowing festival lanterns. At top right, pine trees tower above torii gates and banners. The bottom left design shows an ornate entrance gate beneath a moonlit sky, while the image at right shows a castle in falling snow. An attractive group of designs with fine bokashi shading.
