Artist:Kotondo, Torii (1900-1976) - 鳥居言人
Title:Hair Combing - 髪梳き
Date:1932 (this artwork: First edition)
Publisher:Ikeda - 池田
Medium:Woodblock - 木版画
Format:Large Oban - 大大判, 26 x 41cm (image size)
Artwork Code:11882-Torii_Kotondo
Notes:This is scene number seven from Kotondo's bijin-ga series published via Ikeda. Edition 31 of 100 prints, never republished by Ikeda. After the edition of 100 was completed the keyblock was deliberately gouged to destroy it, and a print of this gouged keyblock was included with each of the 100 prints sold. My print also includes the original folder and a keyblock print from the gouged keyblock (see image). Obviously a very rare and expensive print. Sheet size is about 30 x 47cm.

Signed Kotondo ga with artist's square seal Kotondo; with the title, Kami Suki embossed on the lower margin. Published by Ikeda. The publisher's limited edition cartouche printed on verso, Ikeda hanken shoyu, hyaku mai kagiri zeppan (Ikeda, copyright; edition limited to 100). Undated, published by Ikeda in 1932 (confirmed).
