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 is a beautiful woodblock print by sosaku hanga printmaker Eiichi Kotozuka. The print measures about 16 x 10 plus large margins. Kotozuka was noted both for his sosaku hanga designs as well as his Chinese-style prints; this one is very much in the style of Chinese watercolor. Great color and impression; very nice condition with just a bit of tape remnant in the upper margin.
