Kiyoshi Saito Signed Limited Edition Japanese Woodblock Print Steady Gaze Paris

$1,995

About the Item

A beautifully and darkly 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 "Steady Gaze, Paris (A)" features strong colours, exceptional wood grain texture, and a bold, striking design. It is from a limited series of prints (and some of his most coveted works) that Saito did based on his travels in France, Paris in particular. The print is signed in white ink by Saito within the image. The print was also originally titled ("Steady Gaze, Paris (A)"), dated (1960), and numbered (from an edition of 120) in pencil by the artist in the lower margin but this information was covered up and obscured by the previous owner. As a result, we have re-framed the print and had the margins, though existing, matted out. A very rare and scarce early work. Would be a great addition to any modern Japanese or Asian print collection or eye-catching stand-alone work once framed. Frame dimensions: 25" high, 20.5" wide, .75" deep Viewable image: 19.5" high, 14.5" wide The work has been newly matted and framed with UV protection non-glare matte glass. This print can be found in the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Honolulu Museum of Art Collections. 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.
