Tsukioka Kōgyo – 月岡 耕漁 (1869-1927) – Noh Theatre Character “Prince Atsumori”

$350.00 CAD

From “One Hundred Noh Plays” – Prince Atsumori. Tsukioka-san was, and is still, regarded as one of the top Noh theatre, and figure painting artists of his time. Studying extensively with his father and the great Ogata Gekkō, he became the adopted son of the legendary Yoshitoshi, and himself became a renowned master of figure painting, refining his skills to incorporate the very fine details associated with Noh theatre kimono and costumes. Tsukioka-san’s prints could only be hand-printed by the top master-printers, and only after extensive consultation on the details for each print. Excellent condition. Visible woodgrain. Published by Daikokuya in 1924. This is one of the more difficult prints of his to acquire.

Rich use of “gofun” and strong mineral pigments. Excellent use of wood grain for the background. This piece was used to promote a museum retrospective of Terasaki a few years ago (see last picture). Impressive, large, ōban size.

9.75″ x 15″ and is in very-good condition for its age (very minor flaws – please refer to the photos). Comes with a signed and sealed document of authenticity. Purchase price includes shipping and an email with approximately 3 hours-worth of further reading and documentary viewing. All prices in Canadian dollars.
