Ohara Koson Woodblock Print "Sparrows on Bamboo" Signed Sealed Numbered, Framed and Double Matted. Unlike the cheap knock-off paper prints without seals, this one has a raised black signature "koson in Japanese script" on the bottom left above the red seal Koson, a round red seal of authenticity is found near the center and what appears to be a numbering in the lower right corner (hard to read script with a number 7). The border of the narrow wood frame looks like carved bamboo.

Size: The exposed portion of the print outside the matting is 29.5mm (11-9/16") wide, 50.72mm (22-1/2") length.
The frame itself measures 45mm (17-1/2") wide, 72.5mm (28-3/4") length.

This print came off the wall in a prominent place above a desk at a collectors estate sale.
I believe it's an authentic woodblock reprint (not a photo) because of the vibrant colors and the three seals.

Some of Koson's prints are valued in many thousands of dollars. I have no idea of the value of this print, so you decide what it's worth and give me a reasonable offer, I need to sell it.

Today, Koson’s prints are highly sought after by collectors around the world. His work has been featured in numerous exhibitions, including a major retrospective at the Minneapolis Institute of Art in 2010. His legacy continues to inspire and influence artists in Japan and abroad. Koson is acknowledged as a master of twentieth-century printed kachoga, and with some 500 prints to his name, he was one of the most, if not the most, prolific kachoga artists.

Koson's prints were designed for Western tastes and were exported to the United States and Europe where they met with great success. His work has only recently received attention in his native Japan following the discovery of important reference material including original sketches and paintings for his prints.
