Fine Japanese Woodblock Print by Noda Kyuho (1879-1971)


This unusual and superbly printed design of a foreign (Russian?) sailor, is from the celebrated series "Dai Chikamatsu Zenshu" (The Great Collection of Works by Chikamatsu). Chikamatsu Monzaemon (1653-1724) is often referred to as the Shakespeare of Japan. He is known to have written 97 dramas of which 74 are historical. Many Japanese would be very familiar with the plays. None of the prints in the series has titles. It is probable that the prints were sold in folders which carried relevant text. The print is in excellent condition, no damage, no repairs and no fading, there are two small areas of foxing on the left margin which can be seen in the photos. All the paper used on this series is a deeper tone than usual. The prints are larger than the usual oban size at 17 7/8 x 11 1/2 ins. (45.5 x 29 cms). It was just a little too long for our scanner and the photo does not show 1/2 in of the top margin. It dates from around 1923.
