Kakunen Tsuruoka


Golden Gate Bridge in Fog (pale blue palette variant test print)
(Kiri no kinmonkyou)

signed at lower left in kanji, Kakunen, with artist's square seal, Kaku, signed and dated in pencil along the bottom margin at right, KAKUNEN TSURUOKA, 1936, with red artist's family seal, Tsuruoka, ca. 1936

oban yoko-e 10 1/4 by 15 1/8 in., 26 by 38.3 cm

The lack of Japanese date, title and Kakunen's copyright seal on the margins suggests that this was likely a test print which Kakunen later chose to sign and seal after the limited edition of 100 impressions was completed.

From the Collection of the Tsuruoka Family
