Lot 0058 Details

Description
  • Title: Goyo Hashiguchi, Two Women after Bath, Shin Hanga
  • Description: Artist: Goyo Hashiguchi (1880-1921)
    Title: Two Women after a Bath
    Date: Originally published in 1920
    Dimensions: 40.2 x 53.7 cm
    Condition: Mica slightly abraded. Foxing. Tape residue on back from previous mounting.

    After a calming soak, two young ladies begin to dress. Although the elegance and detail of the ladies' coiffures have been rendered with acute detail, the design draws from the simplicity and flowing lines of Goyo's artistic predecessors. Without the shadow or shade gradations employed in his other works to suggest depth, Goyo invokes an earlier style of ukiyo-e woodblock printing exemplified by Utamaro Kitagawa (1753-1806), the renowned artist of the bijin-ga [lit. pictures of beautiful women] genre. Yet the mirror unit drawn in perspective, as well as the reflection in the mirror itself, belies Goyo's eloquent amalgamation of Japanese and Western art forms. The silver mica background lends the only element of colour, allowing viewers to focus on the intimate privacy between the two ladies.; Artist: Goyo Hashiguchi (1880-1921)
