About This Print

One of three prints in this collection that appear to be crayon lithographs by Ishii Hakutei (1882-1958), who had learned lithography at a young age from his father.  The images have the feel of period illustrations for stories appearing in magazines and the paper also appears to be of the type used in popular magazines of the period.  Hakutei edited and participated in a number of literary and art magazines, and it is possible the three prints originated in one of those magazines. (See illustration below.)
