Seto Nai Kai (Inland Sea), 1940
color woodblock print
10 1/4 x 15 1/2 inches.
This is a gorgeous Japanese woodblock print by noted shin hanga printmaker Tsuchiya Koitsu. The print depicts a sunset scene at the port of Tomonoura. The print measures about 14 1/2 x 9 1/2 plus full margins. It bears the 6mm Watanabe circular seal lower left. The print is in beautiful condition, never framed. There are two tiny tape remnants in the reverse margins where the print was once affixed to its presentation folder. The color and impression are superb. It is easily the nicest impression I have ever seen of this image.

This Japanese woodcut print is by Koitsu and published by Watanabe. It depicts boats in a harbor. It is a full sheet with full margins, approx. 15 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches. I believe that this is a very early state, perhaps the first state for this print, but I am not positive. The print is in good condition with wonderful color.

This print (along with 9 others that I am offering) came out of a wonderful estate full of beautiful Japanese objects. The original owners had lived in Japan from the 1930's. Please see my other auctions for some cloisonne and other wonderful items out of this estate :)

Condition Note - We do our best to describe and picture the prints to their fullest. Every monitor is different and the pictures may show up differently on your computer than on mine. Although they are in very good condition, these prints are not brand new so don't expect pure white margins and stuff hot of the printing block! They show a wonderful age patina typical of prints of this age. Thank you and good luck!
