'Carp Fishes' Jizuri Seal

This woodblock print was introduced in 1926.  This is a first edition bearing Yoshida's 'Jizuri' seal, which translates to 'printed by myself 'or 'self-printed', essentially a 'first' edition in which Yoshida was present during the printing process to supervise the production.  It is an especially important print for Yoshida, as the subjects are said to be his oldest son Toshi and younger son Hodaka, along with their mother, sometimes referred to as the 'three Yoshidas'.  This very important print is a classic example of Hiroshi Yoshida's mastery of the shin hanga movement.  It is oban size, a nice large woodblock print, professionally matted and framed.  This print depicts a quiet scene with a woman and her children enjoying their time watching the carp feeding. This print bears Yoshida's Kanji Hiroshi cipher, along with its Kanji and English title and Yoshida's signature in pencil. Yoshida self-published in his lifetime, and his family continues to control the family's output of prints.  This print measures 15.25" x 10.25", matted in ivory, and is framed in a wood and gold tone frame measuring 22.5" x 16.5".  This first edition print is in fine, fine condition.  SHIPPING will be based upon your zip code because of its size.        P20532        $1295.00
