Moonlight, Point Lobos, Monterey, California
1930, published by Takamizawa
large oban, about 11 x 16 in.
World Landscape Series
This print is one of a few unsigned examples kept by the Takamizawa Color Print Studio to be sold in Japan, and never sent to Obata for his signature.
very good color, light brown staining mainly in lower right corner, full margins; a rarely seen dramatic design of waves and rocks that has a near-abstract quality; better photos to be added shortly.
