by Kotondo, Torii (1900-1976) - 鳥居言人

Artist:Kotondo, Torii (1900-1976) - 鳥居言人
Title:Sash - 帯
Date:1929 October (this artwork: First edition)
Publisher:Kawaguchi - 川口
Medium:Woodblock - 木版画
Format:Large Oban - 大大判, 26.2 x 41.0cm (image size)
Artwork Code:12683-Torii_Kotondo
Notes:This print has Kotondo's signature and seal within the image area at mid-left, as well as the date. This is a limited-edition print (171/350 - see the enhanced image below) from the first and only edition, as indicated in the embossed edition seal on the verso. There is also a variant with a blue mica background published by Kawaguchi, considered a joint first edition with 350 prints total. Note that Sakai and Kawaguchi did not publish this scene earlier, so while the scene was painted by Kotondo in 1929, I suspect that the print editions were not published until probably 1930/31.
