About

Yokihi is an original print realized by Tsukioka Kôgyo in 1923. Mixed colored woodblock print. This print is from the series "One Hundred No Dramas (Nogaku hyakuban)", printed by Matsuki Heikichi (seal on lower right) Signed Kōgyo (Japanese character) on lower right. On the lower right there is Kōgyo red seal which refers to the reference: no. 13, p. 170 in The Beauty of Silence: Nō and Nature Prints by Tsukioka Kōgyo (1869-1927), Robert Schaap & J. Thomas Rimer, Hotei Publishing, 2010. Good conditions except for very light stains along the margins. Include passepartout: 49.6 x 39.5 cm This precious print represents Yōkihi, the main character of the namesake play written by Komparu Zenchiku (1405-1470?), in which the Chinese Tang dynasty emperor Genshō grieves over his favorite mistress Yōhiki. The beautiful woman wears a precious red kimono decorated by floral motifs and gilded and silver insert. Kogyo Tsukioka (Tokio 1869-1927) was born in Tokyo in 1869 as Hanyu Sadanosuke. The adopted son of the famed ukiyo-e artist Yoshitoshi, Kogyo studied both painting and woodblock printing under him. He later studied with Gekko. Kogyo did a number of nature studies and Sino-Japanese war prints but is primarily known for his images of the Noh theatre, a traditional aristocratic form of Japanese performing arts. Unlike most classical ukiyo-e prints, his works have an almost painterly quality and use much gold and silver for the Noh costume embellishments. These prints often required very skill engravers and printers to produce. This artwork is shipped from Italy. Under existing legislation, any artwork in Italy created over 70 years ago by an artist who has died requires a licence for export regardless of the work’s market price. The shipping may require additional handling days to require the licence according to the final destination of the artwork.
