Comments: This is a rare koban version of Tekiho's sumi-e scene of a sailboat beside a bamboo-lined lake. There are also oban and postcard-sized versions. Not much is known about Tekiho, other than that he worked for the publisher Doi in the 1930's and produced these wonderful sumi-e (charcoal) scenes. This print originates from the deceased estate of an ex-Doi printer. Artist signature and red seals at lower right. Title from Doi Hangaten catalog.
