Beautiful Bijin-ga woodblock print is by Goyo Hashiguchi. Published by Tanseisha. Very beautiful mica background and very nice colors. Goyo's signature and seal and original date in the image at right. Carver name; Sadao Uetani, Printer name; Mitsuo Hasizume, Narazaki supervisor's seal, and Tanseisha's publisher seal on the left margin. This composition has more than a passing resemblance to some of Utamaro's beauties in semi-deshabille.
