This is very rare and handsome work done by Leornad Foujita in Mokuhanga(wood block print) over Washi (traditional Japanse paper) as photographed. It has beautiful blue background with White Cat laying. It is very rare to find Foujita’s work in Washi. Framing is done by Japanese framer in Japan. I had this Cat last 38 years in our collection. The workmanship is exquisite as the detail of cat face as well as leg and hair. We gurantee it is done by Leonard Foujita.
