A large print (13.75 x 20.5 inches; 35 x 52 cms) of a cat prowling around a staked tomato plant. A rare print by an artist who obviously had a penchant for cats as there are several other designs of them by him. Published by Fusui Gabo, Showa 6, 8th month.


Very good impression with the baren marks intentionally forming a background pattern. Very good colour and condition. Signed Hiroaki Saku with seal Hiroaki.
