Koitsu, Tsuchiya- Teahouse - Yotsuya Arakicho- Full11.jpg: Arakicho This print- Incredible shin-hanga work and one of Koitsu’s masterworks. The classic geisha house illuminated at nighttime. Two girls seen passing at the doorway, the silhouette of another in the window above. Wonderful, moody print and stunning design. From the collection of a Doi printer- We recently bought eight prints that came from the estate of a man who work as a woodblock printer for the Doi publishing company in the 1970’s. Some of the 20th century printers were known to have collected some of the woodblock prints that they were printing for their employer, in this case Doi Hanga. These eight prints were purchased from the estate of the printer by a prominent Japanese print dealer. We bought the group from that dealer and are offering all eight on Ebay tonight. The prints are very finely printed and in excellent condition. They are a nice chance to collect a more historic example of these subjects. Signed- Koitsu with red artist’s seal Publisher- Doi Image size- 9 1/2” x 14 1/4” (oban) Condition- In perfect condition with no issues to report. Nice color, excellent detail, not backed, not toned, no tears.
