This woodblock print (from a limited edition of 250) is from The Second Collection of Modern Beauties (Gendai bijin shu dai-nishu). It is entitled Maiko girl. It was published by Watanabe with a date of July 12, 1932. It is signed and dated on the upper left. It has the Watanabe publisher seal on the lower left. The limited edition seal is on the verso. The paper measures 17″ x 11″. Framed dimensions are 24 7/16″ x 17 3/4″. There is also a “Shinsui” signature on the backing board, but we suspect this was added by the framer. Again, the condition on this piece is remarkable. Please read condition report and see photos.
