Hagoromo 羽衣, (The Feather Mantle), is one of Japan's most performed Japanese Noh plays. Tsukioka Kōgyo's Nougaku Hyakuban Hagoromo depicts the play's principle character, Shite. a celestial maiden, wearing a kazura (a kind of wig), kazura-obi (belt for kazura), onna-basara, tenkan (celestial crown), kitsuke / surihaku (a kind of kimono with gold or silver foils), koshimaki / nuihaku (a kind of kimono with gold or silver foils and embroidery), koshi-obi (belt), a fan and a chōken.  Shite also wears several masks in Hagoromo, Zō, Wakaonna, and Ko'omote, but I'm not sure which is in this picture.   Nōgaku hyakuban was a series of 120 prints released in1923 through 1926.

Tsukioka Kōgyo (月岡 耕漁?), sometimes called Sakamaki Kōgyo (坂巻 耕漁?), (April 18, 1869 - February 25, 1927) was a Japanese artist of the Meiji period. He was a student and adopted son of Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, and also studied with Ogata Gekkō. Although Kōgyo sometimes painted other subjects, for most of his career he made pictures of Japanese noh theatre, either as large-scale paintings or colored woodblock prints. Many of the latter were published in series and sold as multi-volume sets. Some sets, such as Nōgaku zue, have been preserved as albums in their original bindings, including accordion-style bindings known as orihon, while other sets such as Nōga taikan, were issued in sewn bindings known as yamato toji. Although most bound sets belong to institutional collections, individual prints by Kōgyo can still be found through dealers specializing in Japanese prints.

 When I originally purchased this print it was valued with an appraisal over $1000, however, since copies have turned up , the value has gone down considerably and having been monitoring this particular print listed on eBay, it appears that either A, there is no demand for this print and its remains unsold, or B, the seller has multiple reproduction copies.
