This is a wonderful small vintage signed woodblock painting by listed artist Kaoru Kawan, CANARY.Charming mod depiction of a young gal with a canary bird resting on her knee.The woodblock is about 7 inches tall by four and a half inches wide.I purchased it years ago at a military related estate sale.Altough not expert, I believe it is original as I can see and feel the paint or ink and I had purchased others by the same artist at that sale (which I have since sold and which were original).Due to the small size, and the fact that it is folded over I suspect it may be a card.

Artist Bio: Kaoru Kawano was a very popular artist for his distinctively styled depictions of figures, especially children. He uses the wood grain patterns to lender the textures and the mood to the works.
