Japanese Sosaku Hanga Woodblock Print Tadashi Nakayama Running Horses
This Japanese limited edition sosaku hanga woodblock print by Tadashi Nakayama (b. 1927) titled “Running Horses” features two horses in profile galloping side by side. The print was executed in bold colors with gold diagonal lines and silver highlights set against a black background. This horizontal image is pencil-signed “T. Nakayama,” numbered 59/95, and dated 1984 in the bottom margin. The bottom margin edge also contains the title and original purchase price of 150,000 yen. The red Nakayama seal is verso. According to Kappy Hendricks, this image shows a distinct shift in Nakayama’s work toward a stronger use of color and line. A color illustration of this image can be found on plate 208 of “T. Nakayama” published in 1989. Paper size: 14 1/8”V x 26 3/8”H (image: 9 ˝”V x 22 3/8”H). This print is in very good overall condition. There is faint mat burn evident and the paper is somewhat wavy. Two pieces of archival tape are on the back top edge. This image was purchased in Japan at the time of production and is from a Scottsdale, Arizona collection.
