[FLOWERS]. SHINSHIN MEIKA KACHÔ SEN, Vol. 1. Kyoto, MARIA Gabo, N.D. [c.1935?] 30.0 x 41.6 cm., 12 color woodblock prints of flowers and birds. 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 some of the most celebrated Kyoto artists of the day. MARIA has here created 24.5 33.0 cm size prints embellished with all the effects of a deluxe production, bokashi, overprinting, etc., etc. The portfolio covers are worn, but the prints themselves are very good. Very unusual collection, almost never found complete.
