Subject:Need help identifying artist, art style, and value of Print
Posted By: LindsJ Wed, Apr 11, 2018 IP: 2604:2d80:c407:8be8:

I'm looking for translation and identification assistance for 2 prints by the same artist. I'm looking for information on artist, origin, style and any value associated with the art. Any assistance is very much appreciated! I'll post one print here and another in a separate post. Thank you for any help in advance.

Interesting. Thank you for the help. Can you determine if the reproduction print is classified as Important Cultural Property or is it the original? Thank you so much for your assistance.
