: Hi,

: Maybe you can help me. I'm looking for a picture of a print I believe is called "Snowy Night" by Shinsui Ito. It is of a womans face and is very beautiful. If you might know of where I could download this image I would really appreciate it.

: Thank You,

There seem to be at least two prints by Shinsui with this title. The one above (scanned from a black and white book illustration) is probably the most famous of them. It was published by Watanabe in 1923 as part of the series Shin bijin jūni sugata (Twelve forms of new beauty).

The other one was published as a single print by Isetatsu in 1925, according to Merritt & Yamada, Guide to Modern Japanese Woodblock Prints: 1900-1975.

I have not been able to find images of any of them on the Internet, though.
