Autumn Moon at Tamachi by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Autumn Moon at Tamachi
Series; Eight Views of Shiba in the Eastern Capital

Eight Views of Shiba in the Eastern Capital - For his lovely series "Eight Views of Shiba in the Eastern Capital," Hiroshige confined himself to the famous Shiba district of Edo, depicting both popular and less well-known sights during snow and rain, spring and summer, rendered in clear, bright colors. These beautiful views show the area bustling with activity as pedestrians go about their daily lives, strolling through the streets, visiting shrines, or viewing cherry blossoms. Originals from the series are rare, as are these fine old reprints. A lovely and unusual series.

Publisher - Adachi from a rare series of Edo masterwork designs. Adachi publisher seal in margin.

Adachi was one of the most respected publishers of the 20th century. Their woodblocks were printed to the highest standards with excellent color and fine detail. Founded in 1925, Adachi also chose interesting and varied subjects for their prints and was the only publisher of many famous old ukiyo-e images.

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.

Autumn Moon at Tamachi - Lovely scenic view of the Mita Hachiman Shrine at Tamachi, picturesquely located atop a wooded hill. Several visitors pause in the courtyard to view the full moon overhead, which casts a pale white light over the water below. A handsome design with beautiful shading in the night sky.
