Oil on board
The painting is in good condition, yet the wooden frame has damaged the surface in several places. However, when mounted professionally this damage will become invisible. The frame could still be used and will be included if desired.
Paintings by Takasawa Keiichi seldom come on the market. It is interesting that the model is obviously the same woman that figures on his woodblock prints that date from around 1970. Yet this painting was made in 1953, so much earlier than his woodblock prints.
