Original Tokuriki (1902 - 1999) Japanese Woodblock Print
Paper Lantern Vendor
Comments - Charming scene of two young girls admiring an array of colorful paper lanterns for sale. Lanterns of all shapes and sizes hang from a display adorned with cherry blossoms, the soft light casting shadows on the ground below. At right, the vendor can bee seen in silhouette tending to the display, a dog at her side. A torii gate can be seen in the background at left. Published by Kyoto Hanga-in. The first time we've seen this attractive design.
