Greetings,

 

I found a nice oshigata print of what looks like an exceptional sword at a garage sale.  I could only read "Bizen Osafune Kanenaga." Any help in translating the remainder including the mei and kao) would be much appreciated.

 

Warmest Regards,

Hoanh

Looks like Allen Mckelvy's oshigata work. He was at the Chicago show.

Thank you Barry. I was trying to decipher the signature, but it was too flowery for me to decipher.  Now I have the artist's name.

bugei is going out of business, so the link is no longer active.

does anyone have information on the sword depicted in the oshigata?  is it a museum piece or something in the artist's collection?

I tracked down Allan and asked about the mei.  It was a katana previously owned by him, but no longer.

Kanenaga on the omote side, Honami Koson (kao) on the ura.  Bizen Osafune Kanenaga is written in calligraphy on the right side of the oshigata.  金猿印刷is the signature that he used for himself (something to the effect of "golden monkey printing").
