'Sail Boats by Night' or 'Sailboats by Dusk'
This beautiful woodblock print depicts a night scene of sailboats on the water. The color and gradation are wonderful, capturing the essence of the night, with the largest boat lit by lantern light alone. This print was produced in 1930. This edition is likely a first edition, because it was published by Watanabe Shozuboro, and it is matted in its original mat jacket, with title and Koson's name. This print also bears Koson's 'Shoson' seals. This print measures 8.5" x 13.25", and the wood frame measures 14.25" x 18.25". It is in good condition, with mild generalized toning. P30417 $495.00
