DescriptionAutumn in Nagoya (Nagoya Tourism Bureau, 1930s). Fine+ on Linen. Japanese Railway Travel Poster (24.5" X 36.25") Kenkichi Sugimoto Artwork.
This gorgeous poster of the Nagoya Castle, featuring Kenkichi Sugimoto artwork, was issued by the Nagoya Tourism Bureau during the early to mid 1930s. The Nagoya Castle, completed in 1615 by Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu, was designated a National Treasure in 1930. Japan's Tourism Bureau created posters for domestic use only to promote travel within Japan to various national parks, hot spring resorts and other notable destinations in the 1930s. Since this poster never saw distribution outside of Japan, it is extremely scarce. Professionally restored, this poster once had edge wear, horizontal creases, a few tears into the interior, as well as some chips in the borders and outer background. There was a thin strip of paper loss in the bottom edge, and the borders have been airbrushed.
Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
