Original pencil signed Japanese woodblock print by Tadashi Nakayama (1927-2014), titled “Eastern Blue (B)”, 55/85, 1979. This design is illustrated at plate 193 of Tadashi Nakayama: His Life and Work, by Kappy Hendricks, 1982.

The image measures 30 x 22 1/4 inches, plus margins. The print is in very good condition, aside from faint mat burn and traces of residue at reverse top margin. There is extensive use of metallic pigments.

Tadashi Nakayama was arguably the most popular print artist in Japan from the 1970's until his death in 2014, with long waiting lists to buy his next print. His metallic swirling designs of fantastical horses found great favor with the Western expat community in Japan, and his novel printing technique was adopted by other great artists of the time, including Joichi Hoshi. He also did many prints of girls, and often included poppies or butterflies as part of his images.
