|Artist:||Kotondo, Torii (1900-1976) - 鳥居言人|
|Title:||Misty Spring - おぼろ春|
|Date:||1932 April (this artwork: First edition)|
|Publisher:||Ikeda - 池田|
|Medium:||Woodblock - 木版画|
|Format:||Large Oban - 大大判, 26 x 41cm (image size)|
|Notes:||This is scene number four from Kotondo's bijin-ga series published via Ikeda. Edition 7 of 100 prints, never republished by Ikeda. After the edition of 100 was completed the keyblock was deliberately gouged to destroy it, and a print of this gouged keyblock was included with each of the 100 prints sold. My print does not include the original folder and a keyblock print from the gouged keyblock. Obviously a very rare and expensive print. Sheet size is about 30 x 48cm.
Signed Kotondo ga with artist's round seal Kotondo; with the title, Oboro Haru embossed on the lower margin. Published by Ikeda. The publisher's limited edition cartouche printed on verso, Ikeda hanken shoyu, hyaku mai kagiri zeppan (Ikeda, copyright; edition limited to 100). Undated, published by Ikeda in April 1932 (confirmed).
