About This Print

A posthumous printing of this small monochrome work, printed by Yoneda Minoru, likely under the auspices of the artist's family.1 It is likely that the original block, carved by Onchi, was used for this print.  The print is undated and the artist's catalog raisonné (see below) does not provide a title or date.

Scanned from Prints of Onchi Koshiro,
Keishosha Ltd., 1975, p.316, fig. 423.
 
1 After the artist's death the family authorized "memorial editions" from the printer Kôichi Hirai and, possibly, other printers, such as Yoneda.
