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 Kaoru Kawano. It is oban size, about 14 x 9 plus full margins. It is in its original presentation folder, never framed. Bears Kawano's early black seal verso. There are a couple of handling creases that go into the image, but they are not obtrusive; otherwise, the print is in excellent shape.

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.
