Japanese sosaku hanga woodblock print by Onchi Koshiro (1891-1955) titled "Portrait of the Poet Hagiwara Sakutaro" dated 1943. Memorial edition printed by Koichi Hirai. The print is stamped on the back and dated in pencil September 1956. Red seal at the lower left. Paper size: 21 7/8" x nearly 17 1/4" (image: 20 1/2" x 16 1/2"). The print might have been loosely rolled at one time and is not completely flat. The back is lightly browned and has a short pen mark. The upper margin paper is slightly wrinkled and the upper right margin tip is bent and has a tiny tear. An example of this image can be found on page 140 of "Modern Japanese Prints: The Twentieth Century" published by the Carnegie Museum of Art, 2009.
