Koushisei's Print Selections - Tsuchiya Rakusan designed his lovely, oban format "Koushisei's Print Selections" (Koushisei Gasen) series in mid-1930s. Comprised of thirty-six prints, this attractive series features striking compositions, jewel-like color, and delicate detail.
Goldfish - This beautiful image of two goldfish with tiny Japanese rice fish darting about them is a posthumous reprinting by Unsodo. Originals of this subject are extremely rare, so this woodblock is a wonderful way to acquire one of Rakusan's classic shin-hanga images. A great choice for display.
