'O Tsuyu San' or 'Honorable Miss Morning Dew'

This woodcut print by Helen Hyde entitled 'O Tsuyu San' or its English translation 'Honorable Miss Morning Dew', depicts an charming theme of a young child-mother embracing her baby doll.  It has the classic charms of Helen Hyde prints in which the child takes center stage, a simple activity that warms the heart. This print is numbered 141, in a limited edition of 150, and bears Hyde's early seals and signature in pencil.  It dates to 1900, a nice early print.  There is an organic thread in the paper, which creates a natural crease in the paper.  This is a natural nuance of hand-made Japanese paper.  This print's sight size measures 10" x 3.5", the frame measures 17" x 11".  It is in fine condition.   Helen Hyde traveled to Europe and China, and in 1899, she arrived in Japan to begin training with master artist Tomonobu Kano.  Hyde's prints are highly prized by collectors and considered scarce, if not quite rare.   P85212     $695.00
