(1943-??, active mid-1960's)
||From a small series of "bijin-ga" images of a pensive young woman seen outdoors.
||11 3/4 x 16 5/8
("dai-oban," large oban)
||Very Fine. Nicely executed "bokashi" shading to face; flower petals nicely over-printed with pinkish "mica"
highlights; visible woodgrain to grey background; black lacquer highlights to tree; highly detailed carving of individual hair-lines.
||Nearly Excellent. (Few soft creases; light wear.)
||A young beauty sits pensively beneath a flowering plum tree. Nakajima's
prints are seldom encountered outside of Japan.
