Original woodblock print, Published by Unsodo - Kasamatsu Shiro (1898-1991) - Kamakura Tsurugaoka Hachimangū Shrine 鎌倉鶴岡八幡 - Heisei period (1989-2019)

Tsurugaoka Hachimangū is the most important Shinto shrine in the city of Kamakura, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The shrine is at the geographical and cultural center of the city of Kamakura

Shiro Kasamatsu was a student of Kaburagi Kiyokata. In the 1950s he published bird and animal prints, landscapes and "famous views" with the publisher Unsodo.
Alltogether more then 100. Shiro Kasamatsu worked in Shin Hanga and Sosaku Hanga style. (More modern)

In the lower right corner (outside the woodcut) you can see a small notch. This is the so-called "Kento", and characteristic on this site for the publisher Unsodo. Kento is the registration system traditionally used by Japanese makers of woodcuts to ensure that the different colors (each color is applied through a separate log) are properly aligned. See the picture.

Original print from 1953. This is a later version.
The print comes from the original plates made for publisher Unsodo. The condition is new! Never been framed.
Beautiful autum colors. Very high quality.

Shiro Kasamatsu is generally regarded as one of the top Shin Hanga woodcut artists in Japan.

Size : 36,5 x 24 cm

Will be carefully packed between hardboard plates and send with track en trace and insurance.
