Description: Takeji ASANO (1900-??) "Rain in Enryakuji Temple" 1948 Print size is 15.75" x 10.75" Early Edition Condition is very good. No tears, folds or creases. This print is perfect in every way. Strong image bleedthrough to verso Master Asano was one of the great talents of the Shin Hanga era. His skills went far beyond that of artist, as he was a skilled carver as well. He collaborated throughout his career with many of the finest artists of his time, producing many important and acclaimed works. This early strike evidences the publisher's watermark (GEI) in the lower right corner and the all-important double carver (Okura)/printer (Shinmi) seals as well as the artist seal. Master Shinmi is quite elderly and has long been retired, evidencing this print to be an early edition. Another of Master ASANO's famous rain scenes. Technique and registration in this wonderful print are superb, rendering a wonderful 3-dimensional effect. Colours are warm and rich. A lovely print that would grace the wall of any home or office.
