Reference/Illus na
Comments A strikingly voluptuous modern-day "bijin-ga" image--surfing eyes-closed under a curling wave. Virtually an unheard-of artist whose prints are quite RARE. (A reliable source in Tokyo tells us that "most Okada prints are found badly foxed.")
NOTE: Our source indicates edition is now "Sold out." (Stock photos--virtually identical as shown.)
