Inagaki, Tomoo (1902 - 1980)
Poster (woodblock printed in two halves) announcing the 8th woodblock print exhibition (第十版画展), organized by the Nihon Hanga Ky˘kai (日本版画協会) in 1939. Paper size: 36 x 78 cm.
Works by two artists are highlighted (3rd and 4th column from the left): Minami Kunz˘ (1883-1950), one of the founding fathers of Sosaku Hanga, and Tomimoto Kenkichi (1886-1963).
The exhibition was sponsored by Lion Toothpaste ( ライオン齒磨).
Fine impression and colours, fair/good considering the fact that a poster like this was actually used to advertize the exhibition; carefully restored: ż of the top margin is restored, a small area above the advertisement has been backed; a few other minor condition issues.
