A rare oban (10″x15″) landscape by Shoda Koho, most known for his contributions to Hasegawa’s Night Scenes series.

The Woodblock Print

This woodblock print is in as close to pristine condition as we’ve seen. Rich color with no discoloration anywhere. Darkened paper chosen to create additional mood. Full margins. Crisp details. Looks to never have been framed as there is no residue on the verso.
