Courtier and Garden Blossoms by Kamisaka Sekka (1866 - 1942)

Original Kamisaka Sekka (1866 - 1942) Japanese Woodblock Print
Courtier and Garden Blossoms
Series; A World of Things (Momoyogusa)

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 beautiful prints are from a later edition by the original publisher, Unsodo. A terrific choice for a collector interested in Sekka's timeless designs.

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.
