Drawing for Gekkan KYÔTO Magazine

1951. Item #87615

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 TERYORI [MOM'S HOME COOKING] and the illustration is of a homely meal of tofu, 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.
