Japanese Woodblock Print

This is a nice Japanese woodblock print of a garden with fish swimming in a pond. The print is signed in calligraphy and with the red seal of Ono Bakufu (1888-1976), sometimes known as B. Ohno. There are also red publishing seals down the lower right side margin of the print. This print measures 16" wide x 11 1/4" high (including margins) and is in very good condition with no foxing or toning and not laid down but with tape remnants on the margins of the back as can be seen in the photo. There is a small 'Japan' stamp on the back.
