This wonderful color woodcut print of a Tancho Crane on wood, mounted and framed dates between 1950 and 1960. It is in pretty good condition, some slight scratches on the wood panel (see photos; priced accordingly). The oban sized print measures 9 inches x 15 inches. The outside black wood frame measures 14 1/2 inches x 24 inches. The woodcut is mounted on a tan colored burlap fabric on wood. The personalized Kawano red seal is on the right bottom of the woodblock art piece.
Kaoru Kawano 1916-1965 (a short bio is taped to the back of the woodblock). He was a member of the Japan Print Society and his art work is in museums and many private collections. It is ready for hanging. The speckling on the bird is so life like in person... just gorgeous.
