About This Print

A turquoise sky, shimmering with applied mica, provides the backdrop for Hagiwara's colorful cloth-like objects flapping in the breeze .  I do not know how many prints Hagiwara created using the theme/title of breeze, but I have come across one other print made in 1968, shown below, titled, simply, Breeze.
