This is a stunning example of Hasui Kawase Japanese woodblock print depicting “Shirakawa Castle Ruins, Cherry Blossoms”. Title “Shirakawa Castle Ruins, Cherry Blossoms”. Date 1946, 1946-57, lifetime printing. There is a 6mm black publishers seal on bottom righthand corner of print. Print size measures approx 15 1/2″ x 10 1/2″. No tears creases or fading, clean backside and front. It has since been removed. It was attached at two mounting points on the back, top side of print. When removed some of the paper jacket was torn and is still attached to print. I have attached 2 photographs of the print with torn pieces of the jacket still attached. These could be removed but I chose to leave them as to not damage the print. To clarify there is no damage to the print itself, just has pieces of jacket still attached. There are two drying pinholes. Other than that this print is Flawless. This print has been stored in climate controlled environment with no exposure to light. As you can see, the paper on this print has very little, if any, signs of yellowing. Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have.
