About This Print

An earlier print from the artist just prior to her starting her signature use of gold foil and embossing in prints.  There is a range of subtle color in this print that can really only be appreciated by examining the actual print.

This collection's print was loaned to the Portland Art Museum for the exhibition "Joryū Hanga Kyōkai, 1956–1965 Japan’s Women Printmakers," which ran from September 24, 2020 until June 13, 2021.
