Original woodblock print, Published by Unsodo - Kasamatsu Shiro (1898-1991) - "Koi no mizu" 鯉の水 (Carp pond) - Japan - Reiwa period (2019 - present)
Shiro studied arts at Kaburagi Kiyokata. He designed his first woodblock print designs for Watanabe Shozaburo in 1919, after the publisher had seen his work at an exhibition. Shiro designed shin-hanga prints for Watanabe for a long period, and gained fame with his romantic landscapes and depictions of the traditional Japanese life. Between 1952 and 1960 he also created over 100 woodblock print designs for the Kyoto publisher Unsodo. Shiro is generally regarded as one of the top shin-hanga woodblock print artists in Japan.
