Hans Olof,

Thanks for your comments. I must agree with you that some parts of the print/painting do indeed appear to be a watercolor. These areas are primarily restricted to the background. I'm almost certain, however, that the major figures in the print were produced by woodblock printing methods. My reasons for thinking this are the extremly fine details in the facial hair of the figures and the existance of small registration errors where a particular fill color is slightly offset from its intended position. Unfortunately you must examine the print with a magnifying glass to see this detail. I made several attempts yesterday to take a digital image through the magnifier but never got a photo with enough resolution to illustrate the detail. For the sake of argument, has anyone reported prints produced by a combination of techniques such as watercolor and woodblock combinations? Thanks for your interest.
