Kitao MASAYOSHI (1764-1824)

A falcon and camellia. One design from the album: Kaihaku raikin zui, A Compendium of Pictures of Birds Imported from Overseas. The first edition published by Gungyokudo Matsumoto Zembei, 2/1789. Copies of the first two editions are excessively rare and it was then reissued with the plates signed Keisai (as here). However this print does not appear to be from an album and judging from the quality of printing must be from the first printing with signature and when some prints were issued separately. Designs that appear on the market from this publication are invariably on thin paper and poor impressions.


Fine impression with beautiful gradation and blind printing. On thick deluxe hosho Fine colour. Very minor soil, otherwise fine condition. Signed Keisai Utsusu.
