Print size 15.5" x 10.5"

(Full Oban)

Post-War Strike ORIGINAL

Pristine gallery condition. Full margins; never laid down no tears, folds, creases or foxing. This print is perfect in every way.

Good bleedthrough to verso. Complete with HASUI signature and sui (see scan). Authenticated by Doi Hangaten's rectangular publisher's seal and double off-set carver/printer seal.
This scene of winter in Japan at Tago Bay, is one of the most dramatic I have ever seen. The trees in foreground are heavy with newfallen snow, while majestic Mt. Fuji, bathed in pink, towers in the background. Note the reflection of Mt. Fuji in the water. One can almost feel the cruel bite of winter.
