Japanese limited edition sosaku hanga “kappa-ban” (stencil print) of a samurai titled “Tobacco Pipe” (Kiseru) by Yoshitoshi Mori (1898-1992). The warrior grasps his sword with one hand and holds his smoking pipe with the other. The print is pencil-signed “Y. Mori,” dated ’86, and numbered 11/70. The artist’s red seal is above the signature. The paper measures 15 3/4”V x 19”H. This print is in very good overall condition. The print is backed by a thin sheet of archival paper. This image was purchased in Japan at the Kato Gallery at the time of production and is from a Scottsdale, Arizona collection. It is pictured with a black silk mat, which can be included upon request. This image is illustrated on plate 18 of a 1987 Japanese catalogue of the artist’s work.
