Comments - Attractive large format, modern woodblock of four stalks of grass topped with feathery seedheads. The plants are set off by a delicately shaded pink and gray background, creating a striking design. Kyoto painter Tokuoka Shinsen studied with Takeuchi Seiho, initially working in a realistic style that became progressively modern, simplifying forms and layering colors to create a new style of Japanese painting. He received the Order of Culture in 1966 for his contributions to Japan's art. A great choice for display. A text page in Japanese attached to the back features Shinsen's comments about the subject.
