Japanese “mitsugiri-ban” format vertical shin hanga woodblock print by Takahashi Shotei, also known as Hiroaki (1871 - 1945) titled “Night Rain at Asagaya: The Wagon Puller” published by Watanabe circa 1924-1927. The title and the artist's red seal are at the lower right. Paper size: 15 5/8”H x 7”V (image size: 14 3/4"V x 6 3/8"H). This image is cataloged as #M-30 on the informative website www.shotei.com. The print is in very good overall condition with large full margins. The baren marks are plainly visible on the back. There is a horizontal crease in the paper across the lower section and a diagonal crease at the top. These are much more obvious in the images than in the actual print. The paper is lightly toned.
