- Harimaze Tsukushi (Snail and Chrysanthemum) -

Gengyo Miyagi (1817-1880)


The beautiful woodblock print "Harimaze Tsukushi (Snail and Chrysanthemum)"  is by Gengyo Miyagi (1817-1880). His name is also known as Baisotei Gengyo in Japan. (His real family name is Miyagi) This woodblock print is a combination of a snail, its poem, and a design featuring Hama-kiku (chrysanthemums/Nippon daisy) and waka poetry. 'Harimaze' is a style of ukiyo-e, which was created during the Edo period to the Meiji period. In the context of nishiki-e (multicolored woodblock prints), it refers to ukiyo-e that features various shapes and various types of pictures placed in a single print, much like the so-called "Harimaze byoubu" (folded screens with various pictures). Japanese title, carver's seal, writer's seal (poem), artist's 'Gengyo' seal and publisher seal 'Marutetsu-ban', (Maruyama Tetsujiro) seal are located on the right margin.
