Golden Pheasant and Fern Shoots by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Golden Pheasant and Fern Shoots

Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.

Comments - Handsome image of a golden pheasant among young fern shoots. The bird's colorful feathers are beautifully detailed, and the long tail feather echoes the tall slender grasses beside the ferns. An attractive design. The poem at upper left reads:

Blundering into
a path where tasty grasses
manage to grow tall.

Artist - Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)
Image Size - 14 3/4" x 5" + margins as shown
Condition - Excellent with no issues to report.
