We are thrilled to offer you this amazing selection of Utagawa Kuniyoshi's stunning work. This selection of full-colour High-Quality prints will be a beautiful addition to your home and are ready to be framed and displayed in that special place!
Utagawa Kuniyoshi (January 1, 1798 – April 14, 1861) was one of the last great masters of the Japanese ukiyo-e style of woodblock prints and painting. A member of the Utagawa school, Kuniyoshi's subjects included many genres and he is known for depictions of the battles of legendary samurai heroes.
Now you can own FIFTEEN full colour High-Quality plates of Kuniyoshi's work, printed with modern state-of-the-art technology which brings out the fine detail of these magnificent pieces.
Collecting and researching various sources to find these very high resolution images has been a time-consuming task. Producing the very best reproductions in print is a pain-staking and difficult task requiring fine attention to detail, specially since we have to identify the best printing results in every single plate to ensure the highest quality for you. Also, our researchers have found the best heavy stock in 3 different types of art paper to display these amazing works of art. The options available are:
Medium-weight matte stock, (80 lb/177 gsm) printed on one side. Laid Bright White finish with crisp quality and strong contrast. You can select this option in the CAD$60.00 pledge (limited number of copies).
Heavy-coated stock, (120 lb/350 gsm) printed on one side. Unique, clean-white medium gloss matte finish with superb quality and excellent contrast.You can select this option in the CAD$80.00 pledge (very limited number of copies).
Bright White Linen finished cover stock (130 lb/216 gsm). High-quality clean-white matte finish with crisp feel and superb texture. You can select this option in the CAD$120.00 pledge (extremely limited number of copies). ________________________________________________________
