JAPAN, Original Japan Tourist Association Poster by Meiji Hashimoto

Japan 4766JAPAN, 1950’s. Original Travel Poster (24 x 39” / 79 x 128 cm) originally rolled Japanese Tourist Association poster; printed in Japan by Mitsumura; original painting by Meiji Hashimoto (1904 – 1991). The poster reads, “A masked Noh actor in a dance posture”. A “Noh” performer is a storyteller who use their visual appearances and their movements to suggest the essence of their tale rather than to enact it. A “Noh” performance is a drama in which dance and music are the main role and the story is told not through just dialogue, but also through utai (singing), hayashi (musical accompaniment), and dance.

This poster is originally rolled, never folded, and in very good C8 Condition. The only conditional remark is the diagonal fold/tear that has occurred in the top right corner. Otherwise, this poster has minimal normal wear along margins and a couple of small pin holes in the corners. Please click on image to zoom in and review for yourself. The fold/tear is easily remedied and would appear virtually invisible after our Linen Backing process is completed. Please contact us to request this service for an additional $80.

Condition C8. Sold For $300
