Thirty Two Faces, One Hundred Expressions - 8 woodblock prints by Kobayashi Kiyochika

Wonderful collection of 8 original woodblock prints from the series:

 

Sanjuniso Tsuika Hyakumenso [Thirty-two Faces, One Hundred Expressions]

 

Tokyo. Morimoto Junzaburo. 1883.

 

8 prints showing 32 different faces.

 

each oban size (approx. 36 x 24.5cm).

 

Kobayashi studied under Charles Wirgman and Kawanabe Kyosai which allowed him to come up with such striking ideas for woodblock prints.

 

Some minor wear, marks, a few with creases, and slight trimming to left side. Two have some old repairs that have been done well. Otherwise very good. Unbacked with nice bleedthrough.
