Picture 42 of 47

Artist:Takeji Asano
Title:Spring in Daigoji Temple (A)
Date:昭和二六年作 (Showa 26 - 1951)
Edition:First edition
Description:This print is dated 1951 (the known first printing date) and so is a first edition. It's generally considered that Unsodo published prints by Takeji Asano with date stamps in the margin are first editions. It appears however that later editions may also contain a date stamp as can be seen in this 1953 dated second (?) edition copy of the print Spring in Daigoji Temple.
