Tamoto (Sleeves)

Tatsumi Shimura


This extremely rare woodblock print "Tamoto" (Sleeves) is by Tatsumi Shimura (1907-1980). A woman that Shimura drew is very delicate and elegant. The neutral color creates a genteel atmosphere. Her black hair and obi sash against the neutral color creates an amazing contrast. Her pink coral hair ornament adds a charming accent to this lovely print. Limited edition size of only 200 sheets. Carver name; Kentaro Maeda, Printer name; Keizo Sato, and large red "Tatsumi Kenin" seal in the lower right margin reads, "Tatsumi seal of approval".
