Katei no Hana (Flowers at Home). Tokyo, Kokkeido, Taisho Period (1910-20 s).
1910 1910 - This very attractive and rare album by a very popular Japanese female artist contains beautiful printed woodcuts executed in lovely colours, several highlighted with silver. Size: 7.5 x 24 cm. A double-sided folded book with twelve coloured woodblock prints and a colour woodblock printed title page. Original slightly cushioned decorated cloth and printed title label on upper cover. The beautiful prints depict scenes with kimono-attired women and girls in various sensitive settings titled as at spring time; a slight token of esteem; sudden shower; the beginning of the year; the odour of the plum blossoms; after school, etc. Captions in Japanese and English. Partly with some light dust at outer margins. One plate with small repair in margin. A rare work by a celebrated female artist Mizuno Hidekata (1875-1944). She was one of the first popular female ukiyo-e artists and it is very hard to find her works today. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
