There are signs of typical minor mellowing of the paper, some typical minor foxing, and a small 1/2 inch stain along the lower left margin which does not affect the image. The lower right and upper right corners of the margins have some minor creases which do extend into the image. All other aspects of this print are excellent.

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.
