||"A Deshabille Woman Reclining" (given title)
(Limited Edition #93/100)
||11 3/4 x 16 1/4 (oversized)
Light "gauffrage" (embossing) to fan, robe, and hair; strongly visible "woodgrain"
to background; highly detailed carving of individual hairlines.
On nicely "age-mellowed" paper. (No flaws noted.)
||A strikingly sentuous modern-day "bijin-ga" image--eyes closed, bared shoulders.
By a virtually unheard-of artist whose prints are quite RARE (second copy we've ever seen). (A reliable
source in Tokyo tells us that "most Okada prints are found badly foxed.")
