About This Print

One of two prints issued in the 1950s that comprise a diptych, shown below, of farmers taking shelter from a thunderstorm. This collection's print does not carry the seal of the publisher Kyoto hanga-in 京都版画院 as do other impressions of this work, possibly indicating some type of trial print or simply an oversight in applying the seal.
