This is an original woodblock print called, ‘Nanga’ by Gizan Izuno of Kyoto. It comes with the Identification certificate from Japan. The woodblock print is not framed. Here is the information from the 1960’s-1970’s. Gizan first made a study of the Southern school of Chinese paintings and later of the Northern school of the Sung and Yuan dynasties. He is now the only Japanese artist who subscribes to the traditional painting techniques of the Northern school. A World of quiet thinking and the high spiritual rhythm of a landscape naturally expressed on the print-these and the characteristics of the Northern school of Chinese paintings. He is the only artist existing today for Hokuso-ga. Please note this was written in the 1960’s-1970’s. There might be an artist now who does.

In mat it measures 20 inches tall and 14-1/2 inches wide.
