This travel poster was commissioned by the Japan Tourist Association to promote their country to English speaking countries. The image in the poster is based on a Japanese silk screen painted by the Japanese female artist Uemura Shoen (1875-1949) in 1936 titled Noh Dance Prelude.

This beautiful image of a dancer wearing the traditional kimono is the ideal image for promoting Japan to foreigners. The woman is dancing while holding a fan, and wearing a beautiful and delicate red kimono with cloud details. Her white face is a reflection of Japanese beauty customs, and her outfit is a clear connection with the traditional and classical Japan.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
