Title: Genroku Mie - "The Genroku Pose in Shibaraku" / Edition: Trial Proof / Signature: signed by Artist / Size: 38 in X 25.5 in / Printed date: June 1994 / Publisher: self printed and published / Condition: Pristine / ... / Printed on a full sheet of brown-red, handmade, soft Japanese paper to show the enormous size of this costume. Itís square sleeves are supported by two stage assistants. The "Genroku mie" or "Genroku pose" is the high point of the play "Shibaraku" by which the main character Gongoro displays his strength and power. He towers above the other actors, standing on high wooden geta (clogs) which are concealed inside his long nagabakama (trousers).. This print is regarded as a major work by Paul Binnie. The artist had come to Tokyo in April 1993 and underwent an extremely extensive art training under the guidance of master printer Seki Kenji. This print was done towards the end of his 'apprenticeship'. This is a Trial Proof for the limited edition of 25 prints.
