The Heron Maiden

Artist: Tsunetomi
Date: 1925
Size/Format: Dai-oban, 21.75 by 14.5 inches
Description: The heron maiden.
Carver: Yaman Ryoko
Publisher: Matuno Kasui
Condition: Minor areas of wear to mica but generally fine. Slight toning to margins, common to the earliest printings. Gofun intact and uncracked.
Impression: Fine edition of the earliest state.
Notes: From the exceptionally rare first edition numbered 60 (of a 100) in the lower margin and with red rectangular seal below the artist's signature. (The later commercial edition lacks both seal and number). One of the most outstanding designs of the shin hanga movement. See 'The New Wave' page 133 for another example of the first state.
