Original Hoshun Yamaguchi (1893 - 1971) Japanese Woodblock Print
Fuji Arts’ special acquisition from Momose - This print is from a beautiful group of limited edition prints recently acquired from the archives of the publisher, The Momose Print Company of Tokyo. We purchased the entire balance of the publisher’s limited-edition inventory of all designs. They are only available on the secondary market and have become increasingly difficult to find. The prints were originally offered in a shin-hanga limited edition promotion from Momose. The Shinsui and Kaburagi beauties were sold for 280,000 yen each (approx. $2,750).
Comments - Striking large format design of an azure-winged magpie standing in a grassy field. Softly shaded patches of lues surround the bird, adding interest to the background. A handsome design that would make a nice framed display.
Artist - Hoshun Yamaguchi (1893 - 1971)
Image Size - 14 3/4" x 18" + margins as shown
