(1943-??, active mid-1960's)
||From a small series of "bijin-ga" images of a pensive young woman seen outdoors.
||9 3/4 x 16 3/4
("dai-oban," large oban)
||Very Fine. Falling flower petals and kimono's pattern nicely over-printed with silver "mica"
highlights; light "gauffrage" (embossing)
to red "obi" and sheets of letter; highly detailed carving of individual hair-lines.
||Excellent. (No flaws noted.)
||A young beauty reads a love letter under a shower of falling flower blossoms. Nakajima's
prints are seldom encountered outside of Japan.
