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:

THIS PRINT IS AN ORIGINAL WOODBLOCK - NOT A REPRODUCTION OF A WOODBLOCK. THE ARTIST, KAORU KAWANO, 1916-1965, IS NOTED FOR HIS DECEPTIVELY SIMPLE PORTRAYALS OF HUMAN, FLORAL AND ANIMAL FORMS. THEY TYPICALLY FEATURE CONTRASTY COLORING AND WOODGRAIN EFFECTS FROM SPECIALLY VENEERED BLOCKS TO ENHANCE THE VISUAL IMAGE. THE PRINT HAS KAWANO'S SEAL IN RED. THE IMAGE SIZE IS 9 1/4" x 14 3/4". THE PRINT IS FRAMED IN BLACK WITH A GREY MATT. I DO NOT KNOW WHAT'S BEHIND THE MATT BUT THE VISIBLE IMAGE IS CLEAN, UNFADED AND UNSTAINED SO I'M CONFIDENT THE PRINT IS UNTRIMMED AND IS IN GOOD CONDITION.

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.
