Technique/Medium Woodblock print

Description Illustration for "the Tale of Genji", chapter 35, Wakana (ge).
Format Oban yoko-e
Width 15.9 inches = 40.3 cm
Height 10.6 inches = 26.8 cm

artelino # 16117 : Wakana … size of the image-printed area: 377 x 250mm
Yours: 304 x 211mm.

The prints were consigned without any folios. There are thin areas on the
reverse top margin corners of Kocho print which look like the mountings were
removed. The top edge of the paper is clean. Wakana print and another one
(# 16118: Fuji no Uraba) do not have any mounting remnants on the backside.
All three prints have ink stains on the lower left margins corner and the
lower margins. So, although #16117 and #16118 do not have any
carver-printer info on the left margin, I presume the left and the lower
margins were not cut. Kocho print looks a bit newer, without any toning,
than other two prints.
