Wednesday, 1 June 2011 Original 20th century Japanese Woodblock Print Series; The Loyal Ronin (Gishi Taikan), 1921 The Loyal Ronin - Fantastic design from a series of woodblock prints published in 1921 under the title "Gishi Taikan" or "The Loyal Ronin." Based on the famous tale of the 47 Ronin, these lovely images illustrate scenes from this classic story of honor and revenge. Unlike traditional ronin series, these images focus on more quiet moments from the story, including beautiful landscape settings, contemplative nature scenes, and the quiet interaction between characters. A variety of artists contributed designs to the series. Beautifully printed with fine detail and soft coloring, these rare prints are a great choice to collect or display. A fascinating interpretation of this timeless legend. Artist - 20th century artist (not translated) Image Size - Approximately 10 1/4" x 13 1/4" (not measured individually) Condition - With excellent color and detail as shown. Some paper remnants on reverse. Please see photos for details. Excellent overall.
