Original Elizabeth Keith woodcut, printed in colours.

Brilliant impression with exceptionally strong, fresh colours. Signed proof, printed in blue, orange, brown, pink, green, grey, black and red inks.

An outstanding example of one of Elizabeth Keith’s most largest and most elaborate original colour woodcuts. This was the print which Elizabeth Keith’s artisans chose to present to her in a series of proof impressions upon her final departure from Japan.

On firm cream Japan paper with margins, as issued. Some traces of previous mounting at extreme upper edge of sheet verso, otherwise very good original condition.
