Monday, 16 May 2005 You are bidding on an original Japanese woodblock print “Bijin in Snow” from the Taisho/Showa woodblock print master Iwata Sentaro. Iwata Sentaro is one of the most famous Taisho/Showa woodblock artists, specializing in “Female Image”. The whole set of Iwata Sentaro’s work was bought at Mitsukoshi Department store in Japan in the 70’s; even then, it was highly valuable. The size of this woodblock print is 15 3/4 inches x 12 inches. The artist’s chop mark is at the upper right corner of the woodblock print. The colors, which are vivid and vibrant, are in layers. All four borders are intact. This woodblock print is not attached to any backing paper or cardboard 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.
