Original woodblock print, Published by Unsodo - artist : Okada Koichi (1907-1991) - 'Mount Fuji from the coast of Hagoromo. "Twelve Views of Japan" - Heisei period (1989-2019)

Koichi Okada was born in 1907 in Tokyo, studied with Ishii Hakutei and Arishima Ikuma and was a member of the art group Issuikai. Okada is known for his beautifully detailed woodblock prints depicting Mt. Fuji and is considered a true Shin-Hanga master. 

The small cut in the lower right corner is not a damage to the print but a guide known as ‘kento’ to properly align the woodblocks used to apply each different colour.
