Original Eiichi Kotozuka (1906 - 1979) Japanese Woodblock Print
Quail and Lespedeza
From the Uchida Publisher Archives - We were fortunate to purchase a wonderful collection of 20th century prints directly from the archives of the Uchida Art Company of Kyoto. The classic 20th century prints offered in our auction from this collection are all first edition prints of various designs released by the Uchida company in the mid-20th century. These first edition prints are unusual to come by in a nice group as they were generally sold off as they were produced. This excellent collection was held back and recently sold from the Uchida archives. These prints are a nice opportunity to collect a lovely 20th century print, or perfect as reasonably priced gifts. Don't miss out on these prints, once they sell out, we won't have them again!
Comments - Charming design of a pair of quail sheltering under a lespedeza or bush clover covered with two-tone blossoms in soft pink and creamy white. One bird preens its feathers as the other looks up with a keen eye. Nicely detailed and colored. An attractive choice for display.
