This is a rare, limited edition of a Kaoru Kawano woodcut print. This print is titled “FAN” and is hand signed and numbered in pencil on the lower border. This print is vividly colored and we do not think it is damaged in any way. We are not experts and we are selling this for a friend.

Kaoru Kawano is a noted Japanese artist who we believe departed us around 1965. This print seems to have everything going for it; the artist name is in the image, the print is hand numbered 70/150 in pencil on the lower left hand border, it is also signed in Japanese next to the numbering, it is clearly titled in the center and his name in English is clearly spelled on the lower right hand corner. On the reverse of the print is a label that says “SELF-CARVED SELF-PRINTED KAORU KAWANO” and appears to have an artist mark.

This is a beautiful print that we do not believe has been trimmed, it measures 23½ x 17½ inches, we do not know the original color of the paper but at this time the white appears to have a light brown tone to it.

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.
