||"Taisho Pond, Kamikochi"
("Kamikochi Taisho Ike")
||ca1938 (Likely pre-War printing in "chuban" size.)
||One of only 8 designs published by Bijutsusha Publisher (1920's/1930's).
(Carver/print seals present verso one print (EG-071) of this set.)
||6 3/8 x 9 1/2 ("chuban")
||Very Fine. Superbly executed "bokashi" shading to sky, distant mountains, and water
areas; light "gauffrage" to snow-covered mountain ridges, trees, and water area;
life-like reflection; nicely detailed carving.
||Nearly Excellent. (Minor thinning outer verso edge--otherwise flawless.)
