About This Print

Two  states of Tomoo's original 1925 print picturing five peaches on a table.  IHL Cat. #1620 is likely the original state and carries a hand written notation verso "p 29 1995"  IHL Cat. #1622 is likely a later state. Both states appeared to be printed from the same block, although there are visible differences between the prints. There is also a state described by the Spencer Museum as being "monochromatic, olive green." All of the images of this print I have seen are reproduced below.
