KOGYO, Tsukioka   (1869 - 1927) The series: 'A hundred Noh plays'
(Nogaku hyakuban)

This series of one hundred prints was published over a period of four years, from 1922-26, and was sold monthly in envelopes containing three prints each. The series mainly consists of single-sheet designs, but some are diptychs and triptychs. The publication was interrupted for a year due to the great earthquake of September 1923, and then resumed in August 1924.
