Why this is a
Masterpiece

This print is an early image of a Japanese beauty. It is important as it shows the transition of print making from hand finishing and colouring black outline prints prevalent in the early 18th century; to full colour printing a couple of decades later. Work by early print artists is rare and the survival of this work in near pristine condition shows that the work has been loved and cared for as a true masterpiece of the printing artform.

History of the Object
The print was displayed in the 1909 Fine Arts Society exhibition of Japanese Art in aid of the British Red Cross.
