Girl with Dog, 1970

Tadashi Nakayama


Stunning woodblock print "Girl with Dog" is by Tadashi Nakayama (1927- 2014). Absolutely fantastic image showing lovely girl and dog against gorgeous huge sunflowers. Very powerful and dramatic design with amazing colors and contrast. Sheet number "55/65" and pencil signed by the artist on the bottom margin.  Genuine handmade Japanese woodblock print. I heard his complex artworks are made of up to lots of blocks (23-35 blocks), colors (47-48 colors) and stages of printing (51-57 stages). Absolutely phenomenal and spectacular woodblock print. This print is extremely rare and hard to find.

*This print has been framed since 1971 when the previous owner purchased it at Kato gallery in Tokyo.  The frame was a nice and original wooden frame (without mat) from Kato gallery. However, it is extremely large, super heavy to ship and also old, so I decided to sell the print itself without a frame.
