Collotype is an interesting fusion between French and Japanese discoveries. The printing process was discovered in France, about 150 years ago. It was a new style of printing that combines photography and printmaking and the results are one-of-a-kind. BENRIDO was established in 1887 in Kyoto, where they have been specializing in Collotype printing since 1905. With over a century of experience in the craft, they are one of the very few Collotype studios left, and the world???s only one that produces full-color photographic Collotype prints. They have won several awards and recognitions and have been responsible for many big art works and projects in Japan and abroad.

It is the most well-known work among Hishikawa Shisen's reliable flesh brush paintings, but it is also a rare example in that it is a beautiful figure standing alone. The impressive figure that he suddenly stopped in the middle of his walk and looked back at was exactly what was touted as "Hishikawa-sama no Azuma Omokage" ("Void Chestnut").
