'Evening at Shinagawa'

by

Shotei Takahashi

Vintage original Japanese woodcut woodblock print

Takahashi Shōtei (高橋松亭), born Hiroaki (1871–1945) was a 20th-century Japanese woodblock artist in the shin-hanga art movement. Hiroaki Takahashi was born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1871. As a young artist he assumed the artistic name Shotei. As with many Japanese woodblock artists over his lifetime he signed his work with various names and worked for several publishing companies. After studying art, Shotei and Terazaki Kogyo founded the Japan Youth Painting Society in 1889. In 1907, as a successful artist, he was recruited by Shōzaburō Watanabe to contribute to the Shin Hanga ('New Prints') art movement in Japan.

A fine print which is bright with unfaded colours, the image printed on a wove paper sheet measuring approximately 17 cms. x 37 cms. (x 14¾ ins. ) with strong ink bleed through to the reverse.

Unmounted and unframed, the condition of the image and the sheet is good having been attached to a backing sheet by its top edge and has toning and handling marks condusive with age.
