Orchids by Zuigetsu Ikeda (1877 - 1944)

Original Zuigetsu Ikeda (1877 - 1944) Japanese Woodblock Print
First Edition

Post-WWII Estate Collection - In today's auctions we're pleased to offer a special estate collection of beautiful, mid-twentieth century floral designs that date from just after WWII. An American collected these Uchida Publisher prints in Japan immediately following the war, so they are all first edition woodblocks from the late-1940s to early 1950s, an important consideration since many of these designs continued to be printed much later. Carefully observed and beautifully drawn, these attractive images feature a range of color from soft pastels to rich jewel tones. These lovely modern designs are a great choice to collect or display, either singly or in groups. 

Orchids - Beautiful woodblock of bright pink orchids edged in white. The colorful blossoms trail down the page on a slender stem, with large green leaves at upper right. Beautifully rendered in soft, watercolor-like tones. A charming design.

Artist - Zuigetsu Ikeda (1877 - 1944)
Image Size - 14" x 10 1/2" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail, as shown. Slight soiling, a few creases at edges, spot in margin. Please see photos for details. Nice overall.
