Japanese Kappa-ban Print Yoshitoshi Mori Onna Joruri
Japanese limited edition sosaku hanga “kappa-ban” (stencil print) by Yoshitoshi Mori (1898-1992) titled “Onna Joruri” features a female performer singing traditional narrative music to the accompaniment of a shamisen. The print is pencil-signed “Y. Mori” at the lower left, with the artist’s red seal above. It is dated ’73 and numbered 56/70. The lower edge of the paper also contains the title and the original purchase price of 70,000 yen. The paper measures 19”V x 13 5/8”H. This print is in very good overall condition. The portion of the print that was previously covered by a mat is very sightly darker than the center. The print was previously attached to the mat at the top two corners. Traces of the mat remain adhered to the paper. This image was purchased in Japan and is from a Scottsdale, Arizona collection.
