Original Shizuo Ashikaga (1917 - 1991) Japanese Woodblock Print
Rosy Finch and Wild Rose
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 - Attractive image of several rosy finches next to a wild rose with a rosy pink blossom. The feathers of the birds are wonderfully detailed and softly colored with yellow and rose. Lovely delicate line work in this handsome design.
