Woodblock Prints Title: Decorum (Rei), from an untitled series of The Five Virtues (Goj˘)
1st Publication: 1769
Size: Hosoban; 25 x 14 cm (9 13/16 x 5 1/2 in.)
Date of this edition: 1769
Condition: Yellow color has partially faded, turning the green into blue in the dress. Some soiling. A couple of thin areas in the upper section of the print has been reinforced with a darker paper, giving that grey tone by what would be the upper margin if there were any. Very good colors, impression and overall condition.
Notes: Very rare original print from Harunobu. A similar print is exposed at the MFA in Boston, visible HERE
Pictures: Pictures are taken outdoor, in the shade, to reflect true colors, without any enhancements of any kind. The last picture is taken indoor, with a light behind the print, to reveal the exact paper grain, holes if any, or other possible flaws.
