This wood block print (17" x 17" unframed) is an artist proof by Naoko Matsubara, a highly regarded Japanese artist born in 1937. The traditional Japanese medium of wood block printmaking is a favourite of this artist.
Following its creation in 1971, this piece was purchased directly from the artist in 1972 in New York, where she had many exhibitions. She has taught at prestigious art institutions in the United States and now lives in Oakville, Ontario. Her work has been collected around the world.
