Monday, 19 February 2007 You are bidding on a very beautiful and rare LIMITED NUMBER original Japanese woodblock print “Blue Bird” PENCIL SIGNED by the famous Showa Shin Hanga woodblock print master Tamami Shima (1937-1999) made in 1961. The print size is 16 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches. The colors, which are vivid and vibrant, are in layers. The artist’s PENCIL SIGNATURE “Tamami Shima”, the year “61” that the print was made, and the title of the print in Kanji “The Blue Bird” are all WRITTEN IN PENCIL and are in the bottom border of the print. You can clearly tell it is his handwritten in pencil by the depth of pencil indentation into the original Japanese mulberry paper. All four borders are intact. This woodblock print is not attached to any backing paper or cardboard and some ink bleeding can be seen through the back of the original thick Japanese mulberry Washi paper. Except for several very tiny and minor foxing dots in the top border due to the print’s age, which do not affect the image, this woodblock print is in excellent condition. tamami shima japanese modernist woodblock,1961, well listed artist 16.3 x 11.8 in, very good condition, unbacked, unframed some age toning in margins, pencil signed lower right, #80/100
