1. The Japanese
Pillar Print: Hashira-e, by Jacob Pins, Robert G. Sawers
Publishing, 1982, p. 190, ill. #446.
2. Chats on
Japanese Prints, by Arthur D Ficke, 1915, p. 168. "He [Koryūsai] is the
supreme master of the pillar print; no one else has produced so many fine
ones, and practically all his finest work is in this form...In one print
(Pl.17), he dashes the intense black line of a screen down through the
middle of his picture and sets the delicate eddies of a child's and a young
girl's garments playing around its base."
The second reference
by Ficke was sent to us by our generous contributor E. For this we owe him a
debt of gratitude.
