"The 22nd Biennial National Convention of the Japanese American Citizens League takes great pride in presenting to you this original woodblock print of the United States Capital by Mr. Un-Ichi Hiratsuka. Mr. Hiratsuka is one of the Modern world's foremost woodblock artists. He was born in Japan in 1895 and presently resides in the nation's capital. The JACL commissioned Mr. Hiratsuka to design this woodblock print to commemorate its Congressional Dinner held in June 28, 1972 at the Shoreham Hotel. Mr. Hiratsuka's work can be seen in many of the outstanding permanent collections, public and private, in the United States and Japan. He has also published several works on prints and their techniques."
