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 superb abstract woodblock print by noted sosaku hanga printmaker Yuki Rei, well known for his collaboration with printmaker Toshi Yoshida on one of the definitive books on modern Japanese printmaking. Yuki Rei's prints are quite rare on ebay; I have seen only a handful in several years. His works are carried by Kanda and Yoseido Galleries in Japan at quite elevated prices. This print is entitled "Blue Flags"; it is pencil signed and numbered 5/22, a very small edition. Outstanding color and impression; never framed, excellent condition. Measures about 8 1/2 x 10 1/2 plus quite large margins.

Artist Bio: Blakemore summarized her art as, "These airy, generous prints are delicate fantasies, scenes of a landscape that can exist only in the imagination... The works are light, yet the source of the light is hidden ... It is a light defined by shadows, creating a mood of timeless suspension... subdued coloration and shading; and magical, waving forms together create a locus, a place that is both definite and infinite...". (from Artelino)
