Up for auction is this Watanabe Koitsu "Maruyama Park in the Snow Print", by Tsuchiya Koitsu, 1936. This 17" x 11 3/8" print is absolutely beautiful in Great rich color and Great ink saturation to the back. This print was published by Doi Teiichi which contains a water mark in the upper left hand corner and a carver printer seal on the lower left hand side margin. Tsuchiya Koitsufs signature and seal are also n the lower left hand side of the print. The print is in relatively good condition with no rips are tears, it also has a nice impressed texture to the paper from the block impressing. Although it is a wonderful print with brilliant color and comes with a low NO RESERVE starting price is does have some minimal damages. Mostly is in the lower right hand corner where there is a bend in the printc that is about 3.5" in length diagonally across the bottom along with another bend in the same corner closer to the outer edge of about 1" in length. Across the top in the margin there appears like a few crease like marks, perhaps where it was once rolled. Otherwise, it is a great print with bright vivid color and once framed would look fantastic.
