(using art-name "Yoshimi")
||"Yamadera in Rain (Tsubosaka Temple, Yamato)"
("Yamadera no Ame (Yamoto Tsubosaka dera)")
||1950 ("Showa 25")
||Private placement. Consigned by a southwest print collector/dealer.
(art-name used by ISHIWATA)
||10 3/4 x 15 ("dai-oban")
||Very Fine. Superbly executed "bokashi" shading throughout print. Light "gauffrage"
to umbrellas and trees; life-like reflection; nicely over-printed streaks of falling rain;
very highly detailed carving.
||Fair to Good. Quite good colors. Clean verso. (Residues/staining/thinning front margins and
narrow vertical area lower/left image from previous over-matting; mat-line/color-change left and right
image edges; wear.) Interior image area nearly excellent.
||Wonderful colors and composition. A VERY RARE print by ISHIWATA using the art-name of "Yoshimi." Will
frame/display very nicely.
