Asano, Takeji- Twilight in the Village, Nara- 3.jpg is:

This is a beautiful woodblock print by shin hanga printmaker Takeji Asano, entitled "Twilight in the Village, Nara". Measures about 9 3/4 x 14 1/4 plus full margins; signed lower right. Superb color and impression; one of the nicest renditions of an evening sky I have seen in a shin hanga print. Excellent color, impression and condition; a superb piece all the way around. The quality of a Hasui print at a fraction of the price.
