UP FOR AUCTION IS A FABULOUS PENCIL SIGNED AND STAMPED WOODBLOCK PRINT OF A CRANE BY KAORU KAWANO. THE COLOR IS ABSOLUTELY RICH AND THERE HAS BEEN NO DAMAGE, FLAKING OR FADING. THE SILVER IS STRIKING. IT MEASURES 9 3/16" WIDE BY 7 1/2" LONG. THE MATTING IS 10" WIDE BY 8 1/8" LONG. THE FRAME WAS NEW SO I HAVE REMOVED IT FROM THE STAINLESS FRAME.

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.
