Sparrow and Cotton Rose by Shizuo Ashikaga (1917 - 1991)

Original Shizuo Ashikaga (1917 - 1991) Japanese Woodblock Print
Sparrow and Cotton 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 - Beautiful spring image of two sparrows perched on a cotton rose. The softly shaded green leaves and rosy pink blossoms and buds are a lovely contrast to the more muted foliage of the birds. The sky is shaded from blue to white to warm golden yellow. A lovely design.

Artist - Shizuo Ashikaga (1917 - 1991)
Image Size - 15 3/4" x 10 1/2" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Slight creasing and edges. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
