Double-oban sized Japanese sosaku hanga woodblock print depicting the Bodhisattva of Compassion titled “Kwannon” by Kaoru Kawano (1916-1965). Kwannon is typically romanized as Kannon. The artist's red seal is at the lower left portion of the image. The bottom margin contains a pencil-signature, edition number of 57/100, and pencil-titles in both Japanese kanji and English. Dates circa 1950s. The image itself is in very good overall condition with slight toning evident on the back. The ample margins are discolored from prior framing and there is tape and tape residue on the front and back margin edges. The condition problems should not be apparent once the print is properly reframed.
