Large format Japanese limited edition etching by Ouchi Makoto (1926-1989) titled “Dice-Vigor” dated 1978. The etching is numbered 33 from an edition of 80 and is pencil-signed and titled. Paper size: 18 1/2"V x 24 3/8"H. Full margins. Excellent condition. There are three small pieces of archival linen tape at the top margin verso. Ouchi Makoto draws from traditional 19th century ukiyo-e woodblock prints in his subject matter. This image is illustrated as plate 31 in the reference work “Aramusha: Ouchi Makoto The Artist Warrior” by Mary and Norman Tolman. The artist’s comment in the catalogue for this image is as follows: “By expressing the fun side of a Chinese character and depicting both sides of life in the whole space of the picture, I wanted to show the grief of man as a person past his prime.”
