Original Uemura Shoen (1875 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Young Leaves

Fuji Arts’ special acquisition from Momose - This print is from a beautiful group of limited edition prints recently acquired from the archives of the publisher, The Momose Print Company of Tokyo. We purchased the entire balance of the publisher’s limited-edition inventory of all designs. They are only available on the secondary market and have become increasingly difficult to find. The prints were originally offered in a shin-hanga limited edition promotion from Momose. The Shinsui and Kaburagi beauties were sold for 280,000 yen each (approx. $2,750).

Comments - Beautiful image of a fish swimming in a pond in springtime, with blossoming plums framing the scene at left. A striking large format design with soft bokashi shading on the water. This print comes from a limited edition of woodblocks published by Momose based on earlier paintings by the artist. The edition was limited to 300, and comes with the original numbered certificate.
