Monday, 13 June 2005 You are bidding on an original Japanese woodblock print “Bijin and Fan” from the Taisho/Showa woodblock prints master Iwata Sentaro. The whole set of Iwata Sentaro’s work was bought at a Mitsukoshi Department store in Japan in the 70’s; even then, it was highly valuable. The size of this woodblock print is 16 ? inches x 12 inches. The artist’s chop mark is at the lower left corner of the woodblock print. The colors, which are vivid and vibrant, are in layers. All four borders are intact. This woodblock print is attached to an original backing folder sized 20 ? x 14 ? inches only at the right edge of the woodblock print and strong ink bleeding can be seen through the back of print. This woodblock print has been preserved carefully in my family during the past years. As far as I can tell there are no defects, foxing, or stains, this woodblock print is in excellent condition.
