Japanese Woodblock Print, Standing Crane, K Kawano Japanese woodblock print of a crane standing on one leg above green lily pads. The print is 16 ¾ x 11 inches overall, and the image is 14 7/8 x 9 3/8 inches. To the left of the leg is what I believe the artist’s seal. The pencil signature “Kaoru Kawano” is in the print just below the leg. Condition: Excellent. Good crisp printing on heavy woven paper. This print may not show well in the scan of the photo. The red dot is the top of the head, the slender white triangle extending to the right is the bill; the white arc is the neck (shadowed in black); the grey egg shape is the body, and the straight white line the leg. Kaoru Kawano lived from 1916 to 1965. I would guess this print is from the late 1950’s or early 1960’s.

Artist Bio: Kaoru Kawano was a very popular artist for his distinctively styled depictions of figures, especially children. He uses the wood grain patterns to lender the textures and the mood to the works.
