Series; Famous Places in the Eastern Capital
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.
Misty Moonlight on the Sea at Tsukuda Island - Beautiful view of ships anchored off Tsukuda Island, with geese flying in front of a full moon. A lovely Hiroshige night scene with fine bokashi shading in the water and sky.
