This is a great old Japanese woodblock print; it is pencil signed by the artist "Koho" and pencil titled "Canal by Moonlight". Koho is listed in several books on Japanese woodblocks; the book " Guide to Modern Japanese Woodblock Prints: 1900-1975" by Helen Merritt and Nanako Yamada, puts his dates as 1875-1925; he is also known as Shoda Koho . The print has the publisher's seal in red on the lower RH corner. There is heavy bleedthrough on the back as shown in photo; the print is attached at the top only (would come off easily) on a 2nd mat; the mat that is signed lays over it. The sides of the mats appear to have been slightly trimmed, probably to fit a frame; it was framed when we purchased it and we removed it in order to inspect it thoroughly. There is slight toning but nothing objectionable; the print lays completely flat; no wrinkling and no damage; nice strong impression and great color; no fading. The image size is 9 3/4" x 7"; the mat size is 14" x 11".
