ONCHI Kôshirô. Drawing for Gekkan KYÔTO Magazine. An original drawing and magazine printer's proof page, tipped onto a single sheet, 27.4 x 19.2 cm., along with a xerox of the illustration and article as printed in the magazine in 1951.  The article was entitled "HAHA NO TERYÔRI" ["MOM'S HOME COOKING"] and the illustration is of a homely meal of tôfu, herbs and a chawanmushi, with Onchi's calligraphed caption.   As is evident from the proof and the printed article, it was all quite faithfully reproduced.  Charming and effecting evocation of a warmly remembered distant past, long before the war and the privations all around.  A very nice and contextualized presentation.
