Stunning surrealist woodblock print by a major Japanese artist from the end of the 20th century. This print describes a woman holding a flower and her cat in the crook of her arm.

A Ryuo Ueno's comment illustrates perfectly this artwork: "Human" is a subject and motif that I am not interested in. I would like to express the inner strangeness of human beings today, borrowing the appearance of ordinary neighbors".

It was signed, titled, and numeroted (19/30) in pencil by the artist. It is a very limited work of art that makes it even more valuable.

This work by its style and its maker should interest any collector of Japanese woodblock prints.

Ryuo Ueno is the son of one of the very sought-after artists by collectors: Makoto Ueno, an artist before and after the war, a printmaker remaining faithful to his communist convictions, and exhibiting in many communist countries.

He is well known for a series of woodcuts on atomic bomb explosions in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Ryu Ueno was also the pupil of the no less famous Ryuo Koiso.

One of the 10 most famous Japanese artists in the world, of all periods. Ryuo Ueno 上野遒 important dates.
