A faint horizontal centerfold. Notes: Kobayakawa Kiyoshi was born and worked in Kyushu, in southern Japan. While limited to 100 numbered examples, all indications are that the print received only limited distribution, due to the artists' being so far from Tokyo. This, and the fact that he was little known at the time, are reasons that examples of this design are so seldom seen. The print is edge mounted and floated on acid-free, museum board, with an 8-ply, bevel-cut over-matte, measuring 28-3/4 x 20 inches - ready for framing. An example was recently sold in Japan for $70,000! ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS 20TH CENTURY PRINTS - REFERRED TO AS, "THE EPITOME OF THE IMAGE OF THE 'MODAN GARU' (MODERN GIRL)".
