Accession Number:DFJN2017PRJW0004

Title (Original):
Title:Field Hospital  
Also recorded as ‘The Torpedo Officer’ Fuji Arts Inc.

Artist (Original):        
Artist: Hanko Kajita (1870 – 1917)
Medium: Japanese Kuchi-e  Print. Woodblock frontispiece illustrations used in publications of Japanese novels and magazines around the turn of the 20th century. Most of kuchi-e prints were illustrations of bijin and continued the tradition of idealised beauties in
Japanese art. The subjects, however, have a decidedly Meiji era feel about them and reflect the artistic movements towards more western design.  Kuchi-e prints always have two folds, because of their insertion in a magazine or book as an illustrative print.

A previously neglected genre of Japanese woodblock art, much interest has been generated in the subject since the publication in 2000 of Helen Merritt and NanakoYamada’s groundbreaking book, “Woodblock Kuchi-e Prints : Reflections of Meiji Culture.” and the exhibition, Melodrama in Meiji Japan at the National Library of Australia, Canberra, May - August 2017.

Kuchi-e prints have now become sought after and collected by the serious collector.
