"Kotatsu" (Japanese warmer) this extremely rare woodblock by Tatsumi Shimura (1907-1980). Limited Edition 364 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".

This limited edition print is numbered 364 of 450. Carver; Kentaro Maeda, Printer; Ritsuzo Sato (very famous printer in Japan), and Publisher; Yuyudo. Size is large: paper size is 19 inches by 16 and 1/2 inches. Colors are vivid and vibrant and in layers. Absolutely stunning original hand Japanese made woodblock print. Nearly perfect condition except for some slight foxing in bottom margin, part of sleeve and right edge of image .

Japanese color woodblock print, by noted 20th century printmaker Tatsumi Shimura. The print measures about 14.5 x 17" image size, plus margins. Sealed with the artist's red seal, numbered in pencil. Great color and impression, and a very nice design. Very nice condition, never framed; very faint crease in the upper right corner of the margin, well away from the image area. ????
