TATSUMI SHIMURA - Limited Edition

"KISERU" (Tobacco Pipe) this extremely rare woodblock by Tatsumi Shimura (1907-1980). Limited Edition 40 of 450. Rarely seen in Japan and nearly impossible to find outside of Japan as Tatsumi prints are extremely rare, highly cherished in Japan and seldom sold. I do not think this print has ever been seen outside of Japan. Tatsumi specialized in bijin ga - prints of beautiful women. He is most famous for his series "Five Figures of Modern Beauties".
