Featured Prints : Chikanobu's triptych prints depicting the elegant court scenes have been popular items for Meiji print collectors. The beauties in the finely detailed costumes engaging in the every day activities in the Chiyoda Palace Series represented Chikanobu's desire to record the vanishing tradition and the nostalgic Japanese old life. It was no coincidence that his "neo-traditionalism" was created alongside with the movements to define the nature of Japan and its traditions, as they were rapidly disappearing because of the rise of industrialism and Western-style capitalism in the Meiji period.
We offer many of popular Chikanobu's triptychs as well as the single prints from the highly regarded series, "Snow, Moon, Flower" and "True Beauty".
Chikanobu - Tradition and Modernity | Auction Catalog
"Tenmangu Go-shinpitsu" (Authentic Calligraphy from Tenman Shrine). Sugawara no Michizane (845-930) was a renowned poet and calligrapher in the Heian Court.
He was later involved in the court intrigue and banished to the southern island, Kyushu. The legend said that his angry spirit became the thunder and struck the imperial court in Kyoto. Since then, he was enshrined as "Tenjin", the guardian god of scholarship and literature. He was often depicted sitting on an ox, which is a symbol of perseverance and determination. The plum and pine trees are his attributes.

Looking at the complete oeuvre of Chikanobu, one might have the suspicion that there were two Japanese printmakers using this name, or that the artist suffered from a severe split personality disorder.
