Katsuyuki Nishijima

This print is long out of print. From our own collection. This AP (Artist Proof) is one of only a few known to exist. Limited Edition sizes of only 500 individually numbered sheets were ever produced. Nishijima's umbrella prints are very attractive and most popular. Specially old (long out print) umbrella prints are hard to find now. Wooden sign in center says "Travel inn", small lantern and shoji door says "Hisadaya". Nishijima created same title, different design print in 2009.
