Matsuno Hideyo – 松野秀世 – (1936-2002) – Soshiarai Komachi – 草紙洗(小町)

$300.00 CAD


One of the most legendary figures of Japan, Ono no Komachi was a warrior-poetess. This piece captures a delicate moment in the Noh play dance called “Soshiarai Komachi” and it is summarized quite beautifully right here.

Matsuno Hideyo was his father’s (Matsuno Sofu) best student. Born in Tokyo in 1936 he graduated from Tokyo Gakugei Nihon Gakuin in 1960 and won first prize at the Japan Art Institute exhibition that same year. While active at the Japan Fine Arts Institute, he painted the backdrops at the Kanze Noh theater in Tokyo and a series of wall paintings at Itsukushima Shinto shrine.

This hand-printed limited edition was carved by Nagashima Michio and printed by Shinmi Saburo. Pieces by Matsuno-san are rarely found outside of Japan. Excellent condition.
