||Doi Hangaten (with Doi "watermark" upper left)
||9 3/8 x 14 1/4
||Very Fine. Superbly executed "bokashi" shading; nicely visible "woodgrain" in sky; very finely carved details, crisp key-lines.
||Nearly Excellent. Strong colors; clean backside. (Very slight age-toning, light wear; dealer's thin paper hinges top verso; minor printing wrinkles very top margin.)
||Gorgeous red temple print, with left tip of roofline artfully extending beyond left image edge.
It is believed that the extremely fine lines seen in the "key-blocks" of Noute's prints may have, in fact, been produced using
zinc plates. (Learn more.)
