Japanese print by Kasamatsu Shiro( 1898-? ) EVENING SKY AT SUWA SHRINE, NIPPORI, 1932 The print is from 1932. Shiro worked for the publisher Watanabe starting in 1919 and was popular with western buyers. Later in the 1950's, he became interested in the Sosaku Hanga movement. This is an original print; some would call it a first edition as it carries the Watanabe C seal used from 1932 to WWII. It was originally purchased at the Toledo Museum print shows during the 1930's . Excellent color and impression. As new condition except for the age toning of the paper.
