||ODA, Kazuma (1881-1956)
||"Matsue Bridge in Snow"
||1924 (Likely 1930/40's printing, clearly on older paper)
Consigned by a knowledgable collector/dealer.
||Unsealed (on older paper)
||9 1/4 x 14 1/4
||Very Fine. Skillfully executed "bokashi" shading; extensive "gauffrage" (embossing)
to snow-covered mountains, bridges, and umbrellas; crisply detailed lines.
(Light toning; some browning to verso, doesn't effect front; light wear.)
||"The New Wave" pl# 141; Blair "1930 Toledo Exhibition" #167.
||Beautiful wintertime snowscene with extensive "gauffage." Very rare, classic "shin hanga"
image, in quite nice condition. Matsue was the bitterly cold wintertime home of Lafcadio Hearn on
Japan's northern coast.
