This is a rare, fairly early print from Tomio Kinoshita, as his creation of woodblock prints spanned the years between 1955-2007. He used the title face (yellow) even though this print is more salmon in color. Kinoshita pulled his prints as they were needed, so there is great variation in color within a particular edition. This image in yellow is held in the Sackler Gallery at the Smithsonian Institution and was published in Gaston Petit's 1973 two-volume tome, 44 Modern Japanese Print Artists. There is a thin gray paper border around the edges, which Kinoshita applied to a few of his prints.
