Offered for sale is an original Japanese woodblock print by Tomoo Inagaki (1902-1980), titled A Long Nosed Goblin, 1956. This design is illustrated at plate 120 of The Complete Woodblock Prints of Inagaki Tomoo, 1982. Given the goblin's long nose, it is likely a tengu, which according to legend is a mountain goblin with an unusual sense of humor that dwells in the mist-shrouded peaks of Japan.

This print is from the artist's estate! Best known for his designs depicting cats, Inagaki is a well known and highly regarded sosaku hanga school artist.
