MT. FUJI

Clifton Karhu

1943

Original signed limited edition "MT. FUJI" is by Clifton Karhu. Absolutely stunning and rare his very early print. This print shows it’s old age though still full of bold colors and strong impression of Karhu’s talents that makes his works so highly desirable. Now seldom is an original Clifton Karhu print for sale much less one from his very early prints; his first woodblock was 1963 when he turned his attention away from oils and watercolors. He did not begin in earnest till 1964 with his first woodblock print exhibition in Kyoto. This Limited edition of only 50 sheets is very difficult to find.
