Each individual print measures approximately 10
inches by 14 1/2 inches.
Keinan Kacho Gafu, or Bird and Flower Albums by
Keinen, are Panteek's latest offerings of Japanese Shin
Hanga prints. The masterful color woodblocks, carved by
Tanaka Jirokichi, lend a delicate beauty to each
portrait of birds in their natural settings.
Imao Keinen (1845-1924) studied ukiyo-e ("floating
world") woodblock prints and other traditional Japanese
art styles, becoming a professor at the Kyoto Prefecture
School of Painting in 1880. These prints, from Keinan
Kacho Gafu, solidified his importance to Japanese art.
Soon after their publication in 1891 he was made a
member of the Imperial Household Art Committee and a
Member of the Imperial Art Academy.
These breathtakingly beautiful woodblock prints
illustrate more than 100 different birds in specific
seasonal settings with flowers and blossoms. Though
little known in the west, they represent a pinnacle of
the Shin Hanga movement and are treasures rarely seen
with this printing quality and fine state of
preservation. Each individual print
measures approximately 10 inches by 14 1/2 inches on
creamy paper laid, with virtually no foxing. The
prints are from the very scarce original Tanaka Jihei
edition of 1891-1892 & have not been trimmed in
any way. For aesthetics, the full
size of the inner margin is not shown in the images.
