Kawakami, Sumio (1895 - 1972)
Paper size: 63.5 x 46.3 cm. Self-published in 1955, this copy matches the copy in Helen Merritt’s Modern Japanese Woodblock Prints in every detail: the hand-applied colours, the form of the seal and the thin pale-yellow paper. This is probably one of the earliest impressions as the seal bottom left is still intact: in later impressions it misses the bottom left corner. Helen Merritt’s book shows the copy from the Oliver Statler collection in AIC (also on its dust jacket).
Fine impression and colours (fresh and unfaded), very good condition: some creasing of the thin paper, a few minor marks.
