Japanese Girl "Shamisen"
A lushly printed view of a Geisha playing the Shamisen. The carving and printing on this one are beautifully done.
shin hanga bijin print
27.1 x 39.2 cm (10.7 x 15.4 inches)
circa 1950s. Not necessarily the date that this copy was printed.
(5.0 / 5.0) - Pristine. A bit of mounting paper residue verso from the original presentation folder, but not a flaw.
Shown on page 15 of Kyoto Hanga-In's 1953 catalog
which is documented on Ross Walker's Koitsu.com, as catalog "C".
Carver: Matsuda; Printer: Nagae
