Ishiwata Kôitsu (= Yoshimi, 1897-1987)

Colourful macaw (parrot) perched on a camellia branch, with deep black background.

Signature: Yoshimi

Seal: Kiri-Mon

Publisher: not given (Watanabe?)

Date: ca. 1930-40?

Size: Naga-Oban, 37,4 x 22,6 cm (woodblock size)

Very nice impression with bright colours, printed with silver pigments. Upper and lower margin a little bit creased, otherwise very good and fresh condition. Very exciting composition, like an Art Deco picture. A very decorative woodblock print.
