A young boy is captured in warm browns and black in this charming Shuzo Ikeda woodblock print. The artist was born in 1922 in Kisakata-machi, Akita Prefecture. He graduated from school in 1945, taught in Akita from 1946-1955, and then worked in Tokyo as a Hanga artist. He carefully employed the texture of wood in his prints, and specialized in wide-eyed children often portrayed with flowers, birds, insects, sacred stone images, and native dolls.
