Takeji ASANO (1900-??)

"Spring in Daigoji Temple"
1948

Print size is 15.75" x 10.75"

Early Edition

Condition is very good. No tears, folds or creases. This print is perfect in every way. Strong image bleedthrough to verso

Master Asano was one of the great talents of the Shin Hanga era. His skills went far beyond that of artist, as he was a skilled carver as well. He collaborated throughout his career with many of the finest artists of his time, producing many important and acclaimed works.
This early strike evidences the publisher's watermark (GEI) in the lower left corner and the all-important double carver (Nagashima)/printer (Shinmi) seals as well as the artist seal. Master Shinmi is quite elderly and has long been retired, evidencing this print to be an early edition.
Spring in Daigoji Temple by Takeji Asano. Genuine woodblock print. Oban size measures 15.9 x 10.8 inches. Fine condition. Unsodo publisher's seal, Shinmi printer's seal and Okura carver's seal in left margin. Takeji ga characters in lower left corner. Gei watermark and Japanese title also in left margin. One of Takeji's best spring scenes. Not dated.
