KAWANO KAORU
Another wonderful woodblock print by Kawano Kaoru. Sealed with a red Kawano red seal. Not signed. Backstamped with a Kawano Seal. Measures 9" by 15" plus margins. Two clamp marks on right margin where print was hung to dry. Excellent condition. Appears to have never been framed.

This is a beautiful woodblock print by sosaku hanga printmaker Kaoru Kawano. It is oban size, about 14 x 9 plus full margins. It is in its original presentation folder, never framed. Bears Kawano's early black seal verso. There are a couple of handling creases that go into the image, but they are not obtrusive; otherwise, the print is in excellent shape.
