Description: Takeji ASANO (1900-??) "Snow in Kofukuji Temple" 1947 Print size is 16.0" 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 (Nagashima)/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.
