Chrysanthemums Surimono by Edo era artist (not read)

Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Chrysanthemums Surimono

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 - Lovely image of chrysanthemums growing above a rustic garden fence made of brushwood. The white blossoms are rendered in embossing only, an interesting technique. A charming design with fine drawing in the spidery flowers and handsome calligraphic line work in the fence.

Artist - Edo era artist (not read)
Image Size - 8 1/4" x 7"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Slight paper remnants on reverse at sides from previous mounting. Slight toning and soiling, a few creases at edges and spots. Please see photos for details.
