Applying Makeup A3 Print

£28

Goyo Hashiguchi is considered one of the great masters of Shin-hanga, a 20th Century Japanese art movement which revitalised the traditional ukiyo-e style rooted in the Edo and Meiji periods. Inspired by European Impressionism, Shin-hanga incorporated Western elements such as the effects of light and the expression of individual moods, but focused on traditional Japanese themes: landscapes (fukeiga), famous places (meishō), beautiful women (bijinga), kabuki actors (yakusha-e), and birds-and-flowers (kachō-e).

Created in Taisho 1918, Hashiguchi captured this ‘bijinga’ in an intimate moment, applying powder to her décolletage. It’s a wonderful example of Shin-hanga with a contemporary attention to detail.

Would sit beautifully next to our Kotondo Torri ‘After the Bath Print’.
