This original color woodblock print by Kiyoshi Saito measures 10 x 15 inches and is signed in white ink and is stamped. This is a first edition, framed, c. 1950. Saito studied both Western and Japanese art in Tokyo in the early 20th century, and although originally a painter, by 1940 he concentrated exclusively on color woodblock prints. He became one of the foremost Japanese artists of the mid 20th century, known for his distinct style of flattened, geometric, almost abstracted compositions in rich earthy colors.
