ADDITIONAL NOTES FOR THIS DESIGN
Currently Documented Version Characteristics:
|[The only documented copy has had its margins covered, and the usual marginalia are currently unavailable.]
|[Only the version with the Hodo signature and Takemura seal has been documented for this design and is illustrated above. The presumed original version lacked these markings.]
This design is one of several in a small series of garden flowers which Hodo created for Takemura. Although this series was in direct imitation of Maria Gabo's Western Flowers Series
, this particular design does not have a direct counterpart in that series.
Because there are almost certainly additional designs which remain to be documented, this series has not yet been assigned sequence numbers. For now this design is labeled only with a title supplied here.
Azalea, Rhododendron x hybrida
