Hashiguchi Goyo Reprints
Hashiguchi Goyo is one of the most famous and admired artists of the Japanese woodblocks or ancient Japanese engravings of the 20th century.
Often called the "Taisho Utamaro", Goyo published this masterful set of reprints of ancient Japanese engravings as a tribute to his predecessor from the Edo era.
Made in 1920, shortly before Goyo's death, these are undoubtedly the finest and most elegant reprints of the ancient Japanese engravings of Utamaro ever made.
With no expense involved in the elaboration, these impressions of ancient Japanese engravings of Utamaro, have details of excellent quality.
These prints of Utamaro's ancient Japanese engravings are considered some of the rarest and most valuable reprints on the market.
