|Artist:||Kasamatsu, Shiro (1898-1991) - 笠松紫朗 紫浪|
|Title:||Rice Planting - 田うえ|
|Date:||1953 (this artwork: First edition)|
|Publisher:||Unsodo - 芸艸堂|
|Medium:||Woodblock - 木版画|
|Format:||Large Oban - 大大判, about 27 x 41cm (sheet size)|
|Condition:||Good, but there are three soft horizontal folds across the print. Fortunately they are not too obtrusive. Remnant of original folder mount on the verso.|
|Notes:||This is a first-edition by the original Unsodo printer, Shinmi, not by the recent Unsodo printer. In the left margin are title, Unsodo publisher's seal, printer's seal, carver's seal, first edition dating, and Unsodo 'Gei' watermark. Kasamatsu red seal in lower right of image.
The cut-out in the bottom right corner (known as a 'kento cut') is due to the printing process.
