This is a beautiful original woodblock print by noted shin hanga printmaker Tsuchiya Koitsu. It measures about 15 1/4 x 10 1/4 plus margins. It is very unusual in that the Doi seals usually seen in the lower lefthand margin are missing and replaced by a seal I have seen on only one other Koitsu print (which I also have currently). Judging by the crispness of the impression and the presence of the small Doi watermark upper left, I would say that this is an early printing, but as I say, it bears a most unusual seal. Excellent color and impression, full margins, appears never to have been framed. A true curiosity for the avid collector!
