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 image is very typical of Kawano's work with the strong yet simple composition.. It shows a young girl kneeling, holding flowers. Butterflies fly around her head, and are striking because of the metallic ink Kawano used for this element of his design. The print is in very good condition, is signed in pencil in the image to the lower right and is also stamped with his stamp. The print measures 15" x 9 1/8". It has not been examined out of frame. It is nicely matted and framed in a silver-toned metal frame. Frame size is 20" x 14". The back of the frame has a biography of the artist attached.

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.
