This is an original sosaku hanga Japanese woodblock print by Kaoru Kawano (1916-1965). The print is in very good condition. Fine impression, strong color and bleedthrough. No toning, creases or folds. There are some faint spots (possible foxing) in the margins which do not affect the image. Paper size is 11" x 16.5".

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.
