Wednesday, 18 October 2006 Japanese woodblock print Izumi Bridge by Shotei (Hiroaki). Single-owner sale, from the same G.I.’s estate as last week, an impressive collection of Watanabe tourist prints. Stored in his trunk in their original tissue wrapping, they are all pre-war, guaranteed, and in fresh, uncreased condition. Thanks to Marc Kahn for his website www.shotei.com. Last of the Shotei/Hiroaki prints. Night Shower at Izumi Bridge. M-16, W-36 #215. Very good impression, fine color and condition. The Cadillac (he means Lexus) of the series. 7” x 15 3/8”. Published by Watanabe in the 1930s.
