About

"Snow at the Shrine" (Shatô no yuki). Original Japanese woodblock print. Full-length portrait of a traditionally dressed beauty visiting a shrine in winter. She holds aloft a Japanese-style parasol and wears a black naga-haori (long coat) that contrasts beautifully with the snowy environment. She wears tall geta (wooden sandals) to keep her feet dry. The snow-laden pine tree and stone lantern help to define the environs. This is Shinsui’s only full-length portrait of a beauty set in an outdoor environment. With a limited edition seal verso , numbered 105/250. Published by Watanabe Shozaburo. Excellent impression, color and condition. No toning or fading. Literature: “The Women of Shin Hanga”, plate 41, page 182. See also the Minneapolis Institute of Art website for their example of this work. Reigle Newland, Amy, and Hamanaka Shinji, "The female image: 20th century prints of Japanese beauties", 2000, p. 66, pl. 61.
