Original Ohara Shoson (1877 - 1945) Japanese Woodblock Print
Two Carp and Blooming Water Plants
Comments - Lovely shin hanga design of two carp swimming past a water plant with delicate white blossoms in the center of radiating leaves. The fish glide quietly beneath the surface, their bodies softly shaded to give them a three-dimensional appearance. A beautiful, serene nature design and a favorite Japanese subject.
