Monday, 24 October 2005 You are bidding on a very rare and beautiful original Japanese woodblock print “Lipcolor” from the Series “Modern Beauties Bijin Ga, Gendai Bijin Fuzoku Gotai” signed by the famous Shin-Hanga artist Shimura Tatsumi (1907-1980). The size of this woodblock print is 19 1/4x 16 inches. The colors, which are vivid and vibrant, are in layers. This woodblock print is not attached any backing paper or cardboard. Ink bleeding can be seen through the back of the original Japanese mulberry Washi paper. All four borders are intact. The artist’s signature and his chop mark are in the lower right corner of this print. In the lower right border of this woodblock print, there is the artist’s original chop mark again and also the carver’s and the printer’s marks. At the left of the bottom border, it is pencil writing 265/450, means this is the 265th print out of 450 total prints. The publisher’s seal is in the lower left border. As far as I can tell there are no defects, foxing, or stains, and this woodblock print is in excellent condition.
