Ai to Shiro (Blue and White)

Elizabeth Keith

1029

Very scarce woodblock print “Ai to Shiro” (Blue and White) by Elizabeth Keith was published by Shozaburo Watanabe. This print is my favorite print which is very sophisticated and elegant. You see Hokusai's "Great wave" print on the wall and beautiful blue and white plates on the shelf in the store's showcase in Kyoto. Kimono lady has a blue and white umbrella and fan. Obi sash is beautifully embossed. The beautiful black hair adds a very nice contrast with the overall blue color scheme. This print has the most Japanese mood by blue and white colors. This print is at several museums in Japan. Printed on handmade mulberry paper with full margins. Once tipped on the bottom of verso. Very strong impression with fine colors. A prime example of Elizabeth Keith's work.
