item#: 1485395
price: SOLD
First edition Japanese shin hanga woodblock print by Shiro Kasamatsu (1898-1991) titled "Gate at Enkaku Temple" dated Showa 28 (1953). 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 Unsodo (“Un”) watermark is faintly visible at the lower left margin corner. The paper measures nearly 16” x 10 1/2” (image: 14 1/4" x 9 3/8"). Very good overall condition. There is fading to the pink color as evidenced at the left edge where a prior mat extended slightly into the image. There are two pieces of brown tape on the back at the top and lower margins that show through slightly to the front margin edges.
