Scratching the Head by Kondo Koichiro (1884 - 1962)

Original Kondo Koichiro (1884 - 1962) Japanese Woodblock Print
Scratching the Head
Series; Senryu Manga, 1930

Senryu Manga - Amusing design from the 1930 collaborative series "Senryu Manga" by the artist Kondo Koichiro and the poet Kenkabo Inoue. Each design features a "senryu" or short humorous verse by Kenkabo accompanied by an illustration by Kondo, who is best known for his manga or cartoons. These comic scenes range from a man cooing over a baby to a sumo wrestler looking down on his adoring fans, drawn with lively line work and broad caricatures. Many subjects seem rather mysterious and unusual, but no doubt would have been recognizable and humorous to a contemporary audience. Forty-two prints from the series are known. A fun and unusual shin-hanga series, rarely seen on the market.

Image Size - 8 7/8" x 6 1/2" + margins as shown
