||SHODA, Koho (1870-1946)
("later edition," ca1970/80's, on nicely "age-mellowed" paper)
||Obtained directly from Tokyo publisher Nishinomiya Yosaku's remaining final inventory.
||Hasegawa/Nishinomiya's "Night Scenes"
(Tokyo publisher--known active 1938 until late-1950's; then sporadically until present day.)
||7 1/4 x 9 7/8
||Very Fine. Skillfully executed "bokashi" shading; nicely visible woodgrain to sky;
amazingly life-like reflection; highly detailed carving.
||Excellent. (No flaws noted.)
||Hasegawa Catalogue #1250.
||One of the delightful "Night Scenes" series of prints by Hasegawa/Nishinomiya--an early series of 21 prints
which together convey "the essense of shin-hanga."
