DETAILS
  • Himeji Castle Morning by Hiroshi Yoshida Enthronement Edition (Japan, 1876-1950). This is a beautiful 1920s Shin Hanga Japanese original woodblock print. This print depicts Himeji Castle which is a hilltop Japanese castle complex situated in the city of Himeji which is located in the Hyōgo Prefecture of Japan. The castle is regarded as the finest surviving example of prototypical Japanese castle architecture, comprising a network of 83 buildings with advanced defensive systems from the feudal period. The Oban woodblock features a beautiful view of Himeji Castle shown in the morning with a pale yellow tone in the sky which comes with the sunrise.

    This print is contained within a volume of the Japanese Advertiser as originally published opposite page 58. This edition of the Japanese Advertiser, as well as the woodblock print by Hiroshi Yoshida, were published in commemoration of the enthronement ceremonies of Emperor Hirohito in 1928. This is the first edition which was published in Tokyo in 1928. Folio-size purple cloth-covered boards with rooster decoration, bound Japanese-style; xvi + 179pp.

    The print is sealed in ink on the lower left. The Jizuri Seal was not applied to any of this version of the Himeji Castle print.
