Woodblock: Tokuriki Newsstand limited edition


Tomikichiro Tokuriki designed woodblock prints for two distinct genre: shin hanga and sosaku hanga. Shin hanga are very representative and tend to deal with traditional Japanese settings and costumes whereas sosaku hanga are more impressionistic making no pretense of photorealism. Before World War II Tokuriki produced prints for Uchida, Kyoto Hanga and Unsodo. After the war he established his own publishing company to produce his prints. Some of these post World War II prints are self-carved and self-printed.

Yet another Tokuriki sosaku hanga image. This one is characterized by thick outlining, stylized foliage, and no attempt to produce photographic reality.

This image was mounted (see the first image below. However, I removed it and there was no matburn (second image below). There is residue of the previous mounting on the verso of the print. It is not sticky and does not show on the front. There is a printer crease in the top right margin and a fold in the bottom left corner (very unobtrusive). This is number 16 in and edition of 200.

Artist Bio: TOKURIKI TOMIKICHIRO(1902 - 1999) - Tokuriki was born and raised in Kyotoand was influenced by the local art scene from childhood. He stayed in Kyotofor his entire career and was a leader of the Kyoto Sosaku Hanga. He graduated from the KyotoCity School of Fine Arts and Crafts and after that from the KyotoCity Specialist School of Painting. While he began his career in the painting field, he found his true calling in the woodblock print field and was enthusiastic about the reemergence of woodblock prints in 20th century Japanese art. He was influential in the development of new artists later in his career and set up his own publishing company called Matsukyu.
