ASAI CH█ - Mokugo NihongashŘ

Title: Mokugo NihongashŘ
Description: 1918. ASAI Chű. MOKUGO NIHONGA SH█. Kyoto: Uns˘d˘, (1909) 1927. Printed paper covers, tassle bound. This tall 4to sized volume (37 x 25.5 cm) which is an epitome of Asai Chű's "Japanese-style" painting is a companion to the MOKUGO TOAN-SH█, which focussed on his design work. Asai is famous as one of the most important Japanese Western-style painters of the the late 19th and early 20th centuries. He was also an accomplished tradition painter aswell, as this study shows. In the early years of this century after his return from several years in France and before his premature death in 1907, Asai taught design and painting in Kyoto and influenced some of the most important Japanese artists of the later 20th century. This work, published posthumously by his friends, is masterfully printed by Uns˘d˘ and includes 8 pages of color woodblock prints after his paintings and 37 pages of collotypes. This copy has been well loved - the covers are quite worn and there is a bit of thumbing and soiling internally. Nonetheless, a very scarce and important work on a neglected aspect of Asai Chű's work. This is the second printing of this work, but Uns˘d˘ printing runs were notoriously small. .
