Description: Dave's notes: "Shibata Zeshin, designer of this image, was an acknowledged master of his brush, and this print is a good example of one of his major strengths - leaving things out. Just a fish shape, a rock shape, and a dash of water ... enough to tell the whole story. I have books here with more Zeshin designs, but some of them I couldn't dare to send you - you would send it back saying "David, you forgot to finish this one; it's mostly blank paper!"

"Just because these prints are 'minimal' though, doesn't mean that they are easy to make. This print has nine impressions, ranging from faint 'scratchy' falling water, to the deep black gradations on the fish and rocks, and getting the balance right between all the different 'levels' is not easy."
