Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Eruption of Mt. Bandai
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 illustration of the volcanic eruption of Mt. Bandai in 1888, with smoke and flames bursting from the peak and gusts of wind swirling around the mountain. Chunks of rock and debris fly through the night sky while below, people are tossed about like rag dolls. The explosion triggers flooding, with water raging through a small village at lower left. A spectacular, dramatic depiction of this historic natural disaster, rare to find in reprint.
