Seabathing

Japanese Color Woodblock Print 

Sea Bathing

by Takahashi Rikio, 1970


IHL Cat. #424

About This Print

Along with Blue Peep Show A (IHL Cat. #237) this print, Seabathing, makes use of the curvilinear forms that appear in most of the artist's work during 1970 and largely disappear in future work.  

Note the different handling of the embossed circles between this collection's print, below left, and that shown in the Catalog Raisonné, below right.  Color differences are likely related to color shifts introduced during the photographic reproduction process.  It is not unusual for Takahashi to make small changes between prints in an edition.
