Sunday, 8 July 2007 This print, done around 1950, is typical of Kawano's work: simple, abstract shapes, strong design, and use of wood grain to remind us of the medium. Here, two girls suggest a feeling of tenderness and intimate friendship with merging arms and subtle facial expressions. A small label from T.Z.Shiota on the reverse indicates the title, "COUPLE <8>", and inventory (?) numbers. In excellent condition, this woodblock is signed in pencil at the lower-right within the image. Print size is 9 1/4" x 14 3/4"; sheet size is 11 1/4" x 16 5/8".
