Kiyoshi Saito Signed Limited Edition Japanese Woodblock Print Nara, C, 1962

$1,695

About the Item

A beautifully composed woodblock print by famed Japanese printmaker Kiyoshi Saito. Many consider Saito to be one of the most important, if not the most important, contemporary Japanese printmakers of the 20th century. This print, which is titled "Nara (C)" features strong, bold colors and wood grain, and a complex design. The print is signed in black ink and stamped/sealed in red within the image, titled, dated (1962), and numbered (101/200) in pencil by the artist in the lower margin. With the "Kiyoshi Saito" watermark in the lower right edge. Would be a great addition to any modern Japanese or Asian print collection or eye-catching stand-alone work once framed. Approximate sheet dimensions: 17.75" high, 24" wide Saito's work has been exhibited extensively and can be found in galleries and museums throughout the world including: Achenbach Foundation, Palace of the Legion of Honor, San Francisco Art Institute of Chicago Cincinnati Art Museum Fukushima Prefectural Museum of Art Kanagawa Prefectural Museum Los Angeles County Museum of Art Miami Art Museum Museum of Fine Arts, Boston Museum of Modern Art, New York City National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo New York Public Library Philadelphia Museum of Art.
