    Subject: Early 20th Century Woodblock Print. Japanese Art. Ukiyo-e. Goyo Hashiguchi.

    Publication: Tokyo, 1917 - 1918.

    Technique: Woodblock print, the drawing is created by inking wooden plates. With the seal of Hashiguchi Goyo's workshop in the lower left corner.

    Measurements: 27 x 18 cm.

    Description: Engraving made in the workshops of the renowned artist Hashiguchi Goyo, who collected engravings from the best artists from 1596 to 1896, including Utamaro, Sharaku, Toyokuni, Harunobu, Koryusai, Hiroshige, Hokusai, etc.

    Goyo Hashiguchi (1880 - 1921) was a Japanese artist. Hashiguchi Kiyoshi was born in Kagoshima Prefecture. His father, Hashiguchi Kanemizu, was a samurai and amateur painter in the Shijō style. His father hired a Kano style painting master in 1899, when Kiyoshi was only ten years old. Kiyoshi took the name Goyō while attending the Tokyo School of Fine Arts, where he graduated in 1905.

    Chōkōsai Eishō (鳥高斎 栄昌) was a Japanese Ukiyo-e artist. He also used the name Shōeidō (昌栄堂).

    Currently, no personal information about Eishō is known. His works show the skills of an expert hand, so it is likely that these were forged after years of learning. Considered Eishi's most outstanding student, he had a prolific production; almost 200 of his works have survived to this day. He produced at least twenty series that were published by fourteen publishers, particularly for Yamaguchiya Chūsuke. Most of his work appeared between 1792 and 1799.

    It is thought that Eishō's work competed with Utamaro's, who was known for his ōkubi-e profile prints (within the bijin-ga genre) with portraits of beautiful women. Most of Eishō's prints followed that same format. He portrayed his subjects with an elegant style and slender proportions. His most representative engravings are considered to be those of the series Kakuchū bijin kurabe (郭中美人競, "Contest of beauties in the pleasure quarters"). The series shows courtesans from the Yoshiwara pleasure district, and the backgrounds were treated with glittering mica.

    Conservation: Good condition, slight oxidation marks. Mounted on acid-free and pH-neutral museum-quality passepartout.
