Sasaki Toyokichi

Japanese, active ca. 1885-1898


The publisher, Sasaki Toyokichi, along with Watanabe Seitei, developed the "sashiage" technique for printing in an attempt to simulate watercolor painting effects. That technique has been employed here to produce the atmospheric landscape out the window as well as the shading in the loom and the floor which give the picture the sense of having been created with a brush rather than from carved blocks of wood.
