Pair Of Antique Signed Sugakudo Woodblock Prints. These beautiful woodblock prints are in good condition. Please see photos for detail. There are some age spots and mild discoloration in areas which is expected with the age of these items. These are hard to see and both pieces really do not show much age at all. They are both framed beautifully with a description of the series they come from. There is some scuffing on the frames where the gold paint has come off slightly. This is shown in the pictures. Each piece measures approximately 15" wide x 19.5" tall. Nakayama Sugakudo was a mid-19th century ukiyo-e artist. Though the exact dates of his birth and death are unknown, he flourished between 1850 and 1861. A student of Hiroshige, Sugakudo is best known for his kacho-e (bird-and-flower prints), particularly for his series Exact Reproductions of Forty-Eight Birds (1858) and Birds and Flowers of the Four Seasons (1861). These prints are acclaimed for their realistic rendering of the natural world, as well as their delicacy of color, fine embossing, and high technical quality.
