A group of 18th and 19th century Japanese prints and rare books from a distinguished private collection are the focus of the exhibition at Anastasia von Seibold Japanese art this autumn. Coinciding with Asian Art in London, the group features works by masters including Chobunsai Eishi (1756-1829), Katsukawa Shuntei (1770-1824), Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858), Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1797-1861), and others. Some of the books were previously owned by important collectors including Louis Gonse (1846-1921), Siegfried Bing (1838-1905) and Charles Haviland (1839-1921). A highlight is a book by Kitao Masanobu (1761-1816), 'Newly Selected Fifty Poets of the Tenmei Era, One Poem Each' ([Tenmei shinsen gojunin isshu] azumaburi kyoka bunko), woodblock-printed book, published by Tsutaya Juzaburo, 1786 and previously owned by Louis Gonse.
Accompanying the collection will be fine works of lacquer, folding screens and further prints.
