Original Japanese Woodblock by Kawano Kaoru (1916-1965), ca. 1940s-50s, 16 1/2" high, 11" wide, oban tante-e format, acclaimed for his use of texture in abstracts and limited series prints, this abstract print depicting a veiled girl admiring a blue bottle, bold colors and a heavy use of the wood grain texture is well illustrated in the girls veil, dress and hair, not dated, but from the mellowing of the paper and subject matter, I would say it dates late 1940s to mid 1950s, self published in heavier mulberry paper, Kawano's red seal in the lower right, in very fine condition with slight thinning (practically unnoticible and not detracting) in the upper left margin corner from an old mounting, no injury or repair.
