Limited Edition of 130 impressions

These woodblock masterworks of the contemporary period - Tonight, we are excited to offer a fantastic collection of limited edition wood block prints by Japan's leading early 20th century artists.

In the early 1960s, the Tanseisha publishing house produced a limited edition set of 20th century Japanese works of art, titled "A Selection of Famous Modern Japanese Prints". Included in this set were the beautiful prints offered in our auctions this evening. Each print design was released in a limited edition. Note that each auction includes the number of impressions made of each print. All were very low editions. Additionally, these large format prints are beautiful, individual works of art that make a excellent centerpiece in any room. The large format and beautiful color quality are exceptional. Due to low production numbers of the sets prints are very rare, highly sought after. Browse tonight's auctions and select from these beautiful contemporary works.

Comments- What a beautiful and classic 20th century Japanese wood block print. The quintessential Japanese subject -- summer blossoming irises. The multicolored irises are absolutely stunning in this still life depicting the irises in a traditional vase. The object set against a beautiful mottled background. Perfect to add a contemporary unique Japanese flair to any room.
