Ishiwata Kôitsu (1897-1987)

A quiet street scene at evening glow in the harbour town Chôshi in Chiba Prefecture.

Title: (Hakubo) Chôshi-machi Imamiya-dori (Imamiya street in Chôshi at dusk)

Signature: Kôitsu

Seal: Ishiwata

Publisher: Watanabe, Tokyo (round 6 mm seal)

Date: Shôwa 7 (1932)

Original Japanese colour woodblock print. Size: Vertical Ôban, 24 x 36,1 cm (image)

Nice impression with excellent colours. From a little later edition from the original blocks (c. 1946-57). Paper minimally age-toned, at lower margin a light printer’s stain. A tiny pinhole in each of the margin corners. Overall very nice condition of this very atmospheric scene. Probably the best known image by the artist.

Ill. in Amy Reigle Stephens et al, The new wave, London/Leiden 1993, p. 178, fig. 225. Cf. also Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Juda Coll. No. M.73.37.474; Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, No. 1998.120.43; Princeton University Art Museum, 2011-98; The Walters Art Museum 2018.7.5 et al.
