THIS JAPANESE WOODBLOCK PRINT IN THE ORIGINAL FRAME IS A SCENE FEATURING MT. FUJI & TREES IS TYPICAL OF THE LANDSCAPE WORK OF TSUCHIYA KOITSU (1970-1949) AND THE 20TH CENTURY SHIN HANGA STYLE. I HAVE NOT HAD THIS OUT OF THE FRAME & I DO NOT KNOW IF THE MARGINS HAVE ANYTHING IN THEM. MY FEELING FROM THE FRAME STYLE IS LATE 1920S - 1930S VINTAGE. THERE IS A SIMPLE PAPER MATTE AND IT MAY WELL BE THE ORIGINAL FOLDER I HAVE SEEN THESE PRINTS IN. FRAME 13 1/2"X 19 1/2". 9"X 13 7/8" OF IMAGE IS SHOWING. THE MATTE HAS A DEFINITE COLOR CHANGE RIGHT AROUND THE OPENING & I THINK THE WHOLE PRINT INCLUDING MARGINS IS 10 1/4"X 15". IMAGE LOOKS TO BE IN GREAT CONDITION, WITH NO TEARS OR REPAIRS. COLORS ARE BRIGHT BUT I CANNOT TELL IF THEY HAVE FADED ANY. PRINT HAS A LITTLE BIT OF FOXING HERE & THERE. FRAME & BACKING ARE INTACT, WITH MINOR DINGS TO THE FRAME. A TEAR TO THE TOP OF THE BACKING, SEE PICS
