Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870-1949)
This is a chuban
format print. The artist's seal reads "Kyoshi", which was an art name used by Koitsu for prints published by Takemura. The thickness of the paper makes the snow stand out in 3 dimensions in a particularly effective way. Publishers stamp at bottom left verso. A rare print, in almost pristine condition.
Takemura Hideo - Active in 1930s.
