Artist: Yoshida Hiroshi
Title: Kurobe River - 黒部川
Details & Prices: More information...
Early edition with the all-important jizuri seal (meaning "self-printed") in the left margin and signed in pencil by Hiroshi himself in the bottom margin. Vivid, pristine colours. Brush signed and sealed by the artist. See a discussion of the jizuri seal here. This print was purchased from a consignment of over 75 woodblock prints (by Koitsu and Yoshida), all with datings from the 1930's to no later than the early 1950's. All but a couple of these prints seem to have never been displayed and have vivid pristine colours on creaseless paper. They were probably purchased and then simply stored for the last 60+ years.
