Kogyo & Noh Theater

Kogyo & Noh Theater View Works

Kogyo is primarily known for his images of the Japanese Noh theatre, a traditional aristocratic form of Japanese performing arts that is considered more refined than the popular Kabuki theatre. Unlike most classical ukiyo-e prints, his works have an almost painterly quality and use much gold and silver for the Noh costume embellishments. These Japanese block prints for sale are a tour de force of printing and required very skilled engravers and printers to produce.
