Noel Nouet - Noel Nouet was a French artist and poet who spent much of his life in
Shiba Furukawa, 1936 - Quiet scene of rain falling at Shiba Furukawa. Boats are anchored along the edge of the canal as a light ran slants across the softly shaded gray sky. A pagoda spire rises in the distance, and the red umbrella of a pedestrian can be seen crossing a wooden bridge. A handsome image with fine bokashi shading.
This presentation - This print comes in a handsome presentation format as originally issued by the publisher. The print is loose within a windowed paper mat that slides into an outer gray folder with the artist's name and series in metallic gold, accompanied by a page of commentary in Japanese. We rarely see these woodblocks come with the original folders. A nice choice for a collector.
