Original Nagamachi Chikuseki (active circa 1900) Japanese Woodblock Print
Cotton Roses in Rain
Comments - Beautiful image of cotton roses bending forward in a shower, with the softly shaded bands slanting across the image to suggest the wind and rain. The pink blossoms are delicately detailed with embossed lines and soft shading, a nice contrast to the looser, more painterly foliage. A lovely design.
