Tsurita Kuniko (つりた くにこ) was 1 of v few female artists in early Garo. Tsurita’s unique poetic style with her deep understanding of comics formal qualities makes her work outstanding even among her revered colleagues. Many of her works depict “modern women” that was represented in contemporaneous European Art Cinema & was of course v rare in contemporaneous Garo.
In case anyone’s wondering, this is 女 (a silent chapter) from the 六の宮姫子の悲劇 anthology. Most of these were reprinted in Flight, but otherwise I scanned everything else. Has a nice illustration in the beginning, too.
