Figure Drawings by Hashiguchi Goyo

I found these images on a site by a London dealer in Japanese Prints, Richard Kruml-Ukiyo-e.

They are by the shin hanga artist Hashiguchi Goyo.  He was celebrated as a woodblock printmaker of bijin-ga, or beautiful women.

He prepared to make his prints by making pencil studies, two of which are shown here.
