Thursday, 25 January 2007 Early Summer Evening Limited Edition of 80 impressions These woodblock masterworks of the contemporary period - Tonight, we are excited to offer a fantastic collection of limited edition wood block prints by Japan's leading early 20th century artists. In the early 20th century, in conjunction with the interest in the West, contemporary Japanese artists began to design works of art that were distinctly Japanese but reflected a consideration of a Western esthetic. As the leading artists of their time, their works influenced painters and wood block print artists over the following decades. The leaders in this new modern movement including; Fukuda Heihachiro, Tikuoka Shinsen, Tomioka Tessai, Uemura Shoen, Yokoyama Taikan and others dominated the art scene in Japan during the first half of the 20th century. In the early 1960s, the Tanseisha publishing house produced a limited edition set of 20th century Japanese works of art, titled "A Selection of Famous Modern Japanese Prints". Included in this set were the beautiful prints offered in our auctions this evening. Each print design was released in a limited edition. Note that each auction includes the number of impressions made of each print. All were very low editions. Additionally, these large format prints are beautiful, individual works of art that make a excellent centerpiece in any room. The large format and beautiful color quality are exceptional. Due to low production numbers of the sets prints are very rare, highly sought after. Browse tonight's auctions and select from these beautiful contemporary works. Comments- A beautiful 20th century print by master Uemura Shoen of a young beauty drawing inspiration from the works of the great 18th century master Utamaro. Shoen's lovely young girl is wearing a simple, fashionable kimono of the early 20th century and holding a fan and dragonfly over her right shoulder has caught her attention. An absolutely stunning work of 20th century Japanese art!
