Notes (this edition)?The following information was taken from the original web listing of this artwork. Often written by non-experts, there may be inaccuracies:

OFFERED IN THIS UNRESERVED AUCTION, IS ONE OF SIX, KIYOSHI SAITO WOODBLOCK PRINTS, ALL SIGNED BY THE ARTIST, WITH MATCHING FRAMES, RECENTLY PURCHASED FROM A LOCAL ESTATE. EACH WOODBLOCK WAS FRAMED AND MATTED IN THE 1950'S AND,IS BEING SOLD WITH THE MID 20th CENTURY FRAME. I HAVE REMOVED EACH WOODBLOCK FROM THE FRAME, IN ORDER TO PHOTOGRAPH AND, CORRECTLY DESCRIBE. THIS WOODBLOCK, MEASURES APPROX. 10 1/8" BY 15 1/2," WITH A PAPER SIZE OF 17 5/16" BY 11 5/8". THE FRAME MEASUREMENT IS 15 1/4" BY 20 1/8". THE ARTIST'S SIGNATURE IS WRITTEN IN SCRIPT, IN PENCIL, LOWER LEFT, ALONG WITH THE STYLIZED RED BLOCK LOGO OF THE ARTIST, TYPICALLY FOUND ON SAITO'S WOODBLOCK PRINTS. THE IMAGE HAS SHARP, CRISP DETAIL WITH STRONG, BOLD COLORS, ESPECIALLY FOR A WINTER SCENE, IT HAS NOT BEEN "LAID DOWN" AND, IS FREE OF TEARS OR CREASES. ON THE REVERSE SIDE, ALONG THE TOP EDGE, THE PAPER HAS RESIDUE FROM BEING ATTACHED TO THE MATTING WITH TAPE. THIS AREA MEASURES APPROX. 7/16" IN FROM THE EDGE OF THE PAPER AND, IN NO WAY EFFECTS THE IMAGE QUALITY. THERE IS A LIGHT BROWN TONED BLEED THROUGH FROM THE MATTING OVERLAPPING THE EDGES OF THE WOODBLOCK, IT MEASURES ON THE SIDES, APPROX. 1 1/4" WIDE AND ON THE TOP AND BOTTOM EDGES APPROX. 3/4" WIDE. IT IS APPARENT ONLY OUT OF THE MATTING AND FRAME AND IS BELOW THE SIGNATURE LEVEL OF THE WOODBLOCK.
