Precious triptych of polychrome woodblock prints made in 1896 by the famous artist Toyohara Chikanobu. The work is titled "Chasing the Flywheel" and is taken from the series "Ladies in Waiting of the Imperial Court in Chiyoda". The beauties depicted in the work are committed to playing Hagoita.
Hagoita are rectangular wooden paddles, originating in Japan, ostensibly used to play hanetsuki, but often instead serving a more ornamental purpose. These are frequently painted, usually with lacquer, with auspicious symbols, or decorated with complex silk collages. This tradition dates to the 17th century, and although the game itself is now rarely played, crafting decorative hagoita is still commonplace.
Size: 70,5 x 35 cm
The triptych, made by the publisher Fukuda Hatsujiro, despite the clear signs of time, keeps intact its extraordinary visual impact.
