Surimono: Art and Poetry

Surimono: Art and Poetry Ronin Gallery Ronin Annex Ukiyo-e | Japanese Woodblock Prints Early Ukiyo-e (Pre 1800) Ukiyo-e (1800 - 1868) View Works

Surimono woodblock prints are deluxe limited-edition prints that blend the rich visual imagery of ukiyo-e with the ethereal art of poetry. They were privately commissioned by poetry societies and prosperous patrons of the arts for the purpose of commemorating the New Year, poetry competitions and special occasions. Most were printed with a light verse or clever aphorism and used the finest handmade papers with lavish use of gold, silver, bronze, mica, embossing and lacquer. This collection of Asian art for sale includes both early Edo period surimono as well as Meiji period reprints.
