Description: Beauty Applying Lipstick, 1920 Hashiguchi Goyo, 20th century master- With the permission of Goyo’s heirs, a couple small commemorative runs of his prints were produced. These prints are also very rare today. But, they offer an opportunity to collect a Goyo woodblock reprint at a cost more in line with most collectors’ budgets. These reprints were produced to the same exacting standard of Goyo’s originals. Expert carvers were contracted to produce the highest quality wood blocks and printers meticulously reprinted Goyo’s originals with the same attention to quality and detail. These reprints are on beautiful, hand made paper printed with the same colors and mica detail as Goyo’s originals. The prints offered tonight in our auctions are from one of those reprint sets. This Print; Beauty Applying Lipstick- Lovely Goyo print of a beauty applying lipstick in a hand held mirror. She is wearing a fine, formal kimono, her hair carefully pinned up with a decorative crest pinned on. Beautiful soft color in the woman’s kimono and fine detail set off against the soft pink background. This background treated with shimmering mica as was the original. A wonderful print displaying Goyo’s mastery of the female portrait. Signed- Goyo-ga Image size- 10 3/8" x 15 3/8" (+ full margins) Sheet size- 11 3/8" x 16 1/4" Condition- Perfect condition with no flaws to note. Excellent color, no fading, fine linework. This print has been stored only, never framed.
