|TOMAMI SHIMA MODERN JAPANESE WOODBLOCK
Up for auction is this very nice Japanese woodblock by Tomami Shima dated 1960. It is about 16 1/2 by 12 inches and comes hinge mounted on a 21 by 16 3/4 inch matt board. This woodblock is in excellent condition and is a great impression. Has a small "wrinkle" in the upper white margin that does not go in to the image just the border. Pencil signed and dated.
|Excellent print approx 12x16 unframed, dated 1961 in charcoal, yellow, rust and goldenrod. Signature appears to be T. Shimura but could be another name probably starting with SHIM.
CONDITION: Excellent unfolded condition, small fold on lower right corner and slightly wavy paper. One small dent/impression in the middle of the print that could probably be ironed or flattened out as it does not puncture completely.
