Rain at Yabakei, 1918 (fine 1970’s woodblock reprint) Hashigushi Goyo (1880 - 1921) Rain at Yabakei- The scene is from Goyo's boyhood region a place he remembered with great fondness. Goyo melds the great Japanese woodblock landscape tradition, in a print that reminds us of Hiroshige, with western landscape art. The scene could almost be rural France. The colorful rocks, grass and figures stand out against the rolling gray hills softened by the heavy rainfall. The vertical sheeting rain is clearly a nod to the art of Hiroshige. In Goyo’s design the rain is highlighted with silver mica- an especially effective technique- very beautiful. This Goyo reprint- In the 1970’s a small group of woodblock reprints were made of Goyo’s incredible images. His prints are so rare and sought after, these prints offered an opportunity to have a Goyo print without the expense of an original. This print comes with both original folders.
