Japanese oversized limited edition sosaku hanga woodblock print on gold leaf by Tadashi Nakayama (1927-2014) titled “Armored Horse (A).” This rare early image was created from six blocks, nine colors, and nine stages of printing. The vertical image is pencil-signed “T. Nakayama,” numbered 47/65, and dated 1969 in the bottom margin. The red kanji Nakayama seal is on the back. A color illustration of this image can be found on plate 129 of “T. Nakayama” published in 1989. Paper size: 38 1/4”V x 25 1/8”H (image: 35 1/2”V x 23”H). This print is in very good overall condition. The margins are slightly mat burned and slightly brittle at the edges. There is some thinning of the margin at the top from the removal of a prior mat. These flaws in the margins would not be visible once the print is framed. This image is from an Arizona collection.
