An original woodblock print of a girl holding a fan by the Japanese artist Kaoru Kawano (1916-1965). Very strong color and metallic impressions, comparable to silk-screen printing in its richness. Unknown edition size as image bleeds to all four sides and margins were probably cut when framed. It was loose in the frame with no hinging, tape or glue. The paper on the back of the frame has a sticker shown in the last photo. The print will ship unframed, but I will enclose this sticker. Signature: Kaoru Kawano (in pencil) (red seal below signature) SELF-PRINTED SELF-CARVED KAORU KAWANO (paper sticker on back of frame) Dimensions: 15 1/8" x 22 1/4" h Condition: Excellent overall… but PLEASE NOTE the probable loss of margins mentioned above

This captivating artwork is an original woodblock print created by Kaoru Kawano, circa 1950(?). It employs the traditional Japanese technique of the woodblock print with modern Asian imagery. This piece is pencil signed, titled, and numbered within the lower margin. It also is signed and stamped within the upper left of the image. This piece is titled, “Fan” and is number 79(?) of an edition of 150. The image measures approximately 22.25” x 15.25” on paper that measures approximately 23.75” x 18.” This piece is in fine original condition with only minor imperfections such as four tiny pin holes in the corners, light soiling in the top margin, and minor rippling of the paper.

This is a rare, limited edition of a Kaoru Kawano woodcut print. This print is titled “FAN” and is hand signed and numbered in pencil on the lower border. This print is vividly colored and we do not think it is damaged in any way. We are not experts and we are selling this for a friend.

Kaoru Kawano is a noted Japanese artist who we believe departed us around 1965. This print seems to have everything going for it; the artist name is in the image, the print is hand numbered 70/150 in pencil on the lower left hand border, it is also signed in Japanese next to the numbering, it is clearly titled in the center and his name in English is clearly spelled on the lower right hand corner. On the reverse of the print is a label that says “SELF-CARVED SELF-PRINTED KAORU KAWANO” and appears to have an artist mark.

This is a beautiful print that we do not believe has been trimmed, it measures 23˝ x 17˝ inches, we do not know the original color of the paper but at this time the white appears to have a light brown tone to it.
