This is a rare and beautiful colour woodcut by Joichi Hoshi (1913 - 1979).

It is entitled: Necklace D, 1964

It is signed and titled in the pencil - and has a red seal mark, as photographed.

Dimensions: 33 x 28 cm

It is No. 2 of a small limited edition of 50 impressions

It is sold (unframed)

Joichi Hoshi was born in 1913 in the Niigata prefecture and educated in Taiwan.

He returned to Japan after World War II and started his artistic career painting in oil.

He taught himself printmaking and exhibited at the Tokyo Print Biennials.

His early prints (such as this one) depict stars and constellation – but he is best known for his series of tree subjects which he started in the 1970s.

His prints are keenly sought – and his woodcuts are in prestigious collections: including the Tokyo Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Rockefeller Foundation, New York; amongst others.

Given the rarity and sheer quality of Hoshi's print - the price on my one is certainly a fair one.

It is in good vintage condition with no major issues- a wee mark next to the signature as photographed.
