Original Maekawa Senpan (1888 - 1960) Japanese Woodblock Print
Bathing, 1959
Series; Creative Prints by Famous Modern Artists

Bathing, 1959 - Charming image of a woman in a bathhouse, patting the side of her face with a cloth as she kneels alongside a pool with water flowing into it from a trough at left. Maekawa Senpan's is best known for his series "Hot Spring Notes," which depicts the traditional Japanese custom of bathing at hot springs and bath houses. His woodblocks have a simple, folk art-like quality that is very appealing.

It comes with the original certificate in Japanese and English (see below).
