1933. Item #89594

[FLOWERS]. KANJI SHOHIN GASHU {Kyoto, MARIA Gabo, Showa 8 [1933]} 29.5 x 41.6 cm., 15 oblong color woodblock prints of flowers, many in fan format. Maria Gabo was a very skillful woodblock printing house in the 1930s. Their aesthetic sense differs from others of the period, the pallette is subtler, the printing more "boneless" - overall a more painterly effect is achieved in this group of prints by two of the most celebrated Kyoto artists of the day, Kobayashi Kanji (1892-1974) and Matsumura Suiho. Here, MARIA has created prints embellished with all the effects of a deluxe production, bokashi, mica, overprinting, etc., etc. The original ribbon-bound boards with printed papertitle label are worn, the prints themselves are very good. Very unusual collection, MARIA Gabo productions have almost always been broken up for the prints. Complete.
