Rare sosaku-hanga (創作版画) woodcut of large horizontal format, signed by the artist Sekino Junichiro (関野準一郎), one of the most influential Japanese woodblock print artists of the 20th century. The work was created on the occasion of the publication, in 1984, of the illustrated book “Rafu to Joyu” (裸婦と女優), that is “Nudes and Actresses”.

The design of this woodblock print, marked as number 33 of a limited edition of 180 copies, was in fact used for the realization of the hardcover of the aforementioned volume.

The print on Japanese washi paper (和紙), despite the right signs of aging, is in overall very good condition.
