A Fuji Arts Winter Exhibition Item - We are excited to have purchased a couple Japanese collections with a range of rare and sought after designs. We’ve put them together in a winter exhibition and will post them over one week. The items range from Edo through Meiji and up to contemporary. So, there’s something for everyone. The unifying theme is that each print is a great example or very rare item to find in the market. Enjoy shopping the Winter Exhibition.

Comments - Fantastic Kuniyoshi triptych showing a large ship foundering as it strikes a rock during a terrible storm at sea. Yojibei, the ship's captain, is shown at left leaping from his ship onto the rocky outcropping amidst the crashing waves. The ship begins to sink beneath the enormous swells, a smaller vessel alongside it likewise overwhelmed by the undulating waves. The sail billows out in the gusty wind, tiny figures below dwarfed by the white-capped peaks cresting over the railing. A dramatic image, beautifully composed and detailed. A rarely seen Kuniyoshi design.

Artist - Kuniyoshi (1797 - 1861)
Image Size - 14 1/8" x 29"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Three separate panels, backed with paper. Vertical fold in right panel. Small losses at edges, repaired. Slight toning, soiling, and rubbing. Please see photos for details.
