Kiyochika: Morning Glories
Artist: Kobayashi Kiyochika
Title: Morning Glories
Closeup view of morning glories climbing up bamboo. This is a very rare design that was printed in several color versions, with this deep green being perhaps the most pleasing. Kiyochika’s interest in western intaglio printing is strongly evident here, as he has mimicked crosshatching on the open flowers.
Condition: Excellent impression and color; very good condition.
Dimensions: ôban horizontal
