- Janome (Umbrella) -

Tatsumi Shimura


This extremely rare woodblock print "Janome" (Umbrella) is by Tatsumi Shimura (1907-1980). One of my favorite Shimura prints. "Janome" is an oiled-paper parasol with a bull's-eye design. Limited edition size of only 200 sheets. Published by Yuyudo. Carver name; Kentaro Maeda, Printer name; Ritsuzo Sato on the lower right margin. Large red "Tatsumi Kenin" seal in the lower right margin reads, "Tatsumi seal of approval". Beautiful colors and amazing contrast. This print is extremely rare and highly desirable for collectors. I will ship this print with the mat. The mat has a faint spot on the top-left t side and toning on the edges, however, still looks great with this lovely print.
