Original woodblock print, published by Unsodo - Minagawa Taizo (1917-2005) - 'Daimonji Fire Display' from the series "12 Views of Kyoto' - Heisei period (1989-heden)

Taizo Minagawa, who graduated from the Kyoto City School of Arts and Crafts, is mostly known as a weaver and textile dyer. He also made a number of special and unique woodblock designs. He carved the blocks and also did the printing by himself. Publication by Unsodo. His woodblock prints all provide a unique insight in this type of art, and his dyeing skills can be recognised in the colours that he used. Many of his works can be seen in museums.

There is a small notch at the bottom left corner (outside the woodblock print). This is the so-called "Kento", and is characteristic for the publisher Unsodo when found in this spot. Kento is the registration system that is traditionally used by Japanese makers of woodblock prints to ensure that the different colours are well aligned (each colour is applied separately using a separate woodblock).

Signed - at the bottom left in the art print, with artist's seal.

First edition in 1964. This is a later edition, printed with the original woodblocks.

Image size (without margin): 35 x 28 cm

The woodblock print is in excellent condition. Please view the photos for details.

The woodblock print will be shipped by registered post, in sturdy cardboard packaging.
