Overview: Up for sale is this fantastic and rare woodblock print by Gihachiro Okuyama (1907-1981). Okuyama was a prolific print artist from Sagae, Yamagata. His major background was from print advertising, but starting in the 1950's, he shifted toward producing original prints. This print is entitled "Snow Country," and depicts a group of travelers along a snowy path in a mountain village. It is matted and tipped at the top edge to the matting. Title and signature (unsure if this is original to the artist, but it is common on Okuyama's prints) at lower right, along with '30, which may indicate a 1930 date. Okuyama's seal is at lower right. Print is unframed.

Condition: Print and matting are in excellent condition.

Measurements: Print measures approximately 7.75 inches wide x 5.375 inches high. Matting is approximately 10.625 inches wide x 7.5 inches high.
