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:

You are bidding on a woodblock print by Kaoru Kawano. He is known for his woodblock prints of children. This is a seal signed woodblock of a little girl in traditional clothing holding a fan. The print is under glass and readt to hang. I have not examined the print outside the frame so I do not know if it is signed below his chop mark or not. The signature is usually below his red seal. The seal is in the lower left and the mat would cover any signature. It is in good condition with no known problems. Also I need to tell you that Kawano used a shiny surface on this print so when it is in direct sunlight it shimmers. The image showing is 13.5" x 9" with the mat and frame it is 18.5" x 14".

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.
