The Kan'ei to Shoho Era by Kiyochika (1847 - 1915)

Original Kiyochika (1847 - 1915) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Kan'ei to Shoho Era
Series; Flower Patterns, 1896

The Kan'ei to Shoho Era - Fantastic design from a series depicting beauties from different historical periods. This print depicts the courtesan Takao of the Miuraya, reclining as she reads a letter. Her hair is carefully styled with delicate curls around her face, the sides swooping down over her shoulders and drawn up into a topknot at the back. A fine reed blind partially separates the beauty from a procession of women and men. The unique large format figure fills the page beautifully, creating an almost abstract graphic effect that is very modern. Nicely detailed with areas of burnishing on the hair and incredibly fine line work in the delicate hairline. A truly striking woodblock print from Kiyochika's acclaimed beauty series.
