About This Print

A ship being loaded with freight at a dockyard.  One of Miyashita's post-1980s prints1, displaying a move back towards realism from the abstraction of his works created in the 1970s.  

1 While Miyashita did not date his prints, this print was likely created post-1980 based upon the paper not having the artist's "TM" watermark seal on the paper - a hallmark of his pre-1980 prints. 


Verso showing the deep embossing of the paper achieved by the artist's use of wire and other objects on the etching plate
