Shiro Kasamatsu 1st Edition Japanese Woodblock Print Semi Hot Springs
item#: 1485392
price: SOLD
First edition Japanese shin hanga woodblock print by Shiro Kasamatsu (1898-1991) titled "Semi Hot Springs" dated Showa 29 (1954). The seal of the publisher Unsodo, and the seals of the carver Nagashima, and printer Shinmi are in the left margin. The artist's black ink signature and red seal are at the lower left corner of the image. The paper measures nearly 16” x 10 1/2” (image: 14 5/16" x 9 1/2"). Very good overall condition. There are two small pieces of brown tape on the back at the top and bottom margins. A slight area of paper abrasion on the back of the lower left corner may be obscuring the Unsodo watermark. This image is color illustrated on page 22 of Andreas Grund's 2001 catalogue "Shiro Kasamatsu - The Woodblock Prints."
