Hakone in Sagami Province: Lake Yamanaka by Yoshitora (active circa 1840 - 1880)

Original Yoshitora (active circa 1840 - 1880) Japanese Woodblock Print
Hakone in Sagami Province: Lake Yamanaka
Series; Calligraphy and Pictures for the Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido, 1872

Calligraphy and Pictures for the Fifty-three Stations - Terrific design from a Tokaido Road series pairing images with verses in calligraphy for the different stations. Different artists contributed designs, including Yoshitora and Kunisada II. The large pictures include landscapes, figures from history and legend, and scenes from kabuki plays and folktales. Several prints feature comic illustrations, including the adventures and mishaps of Kita and Yaji, the bumbling travelers from the popular novel "Shank's Mare." Others include travelers in Western attire or distinctly modern Meiji subjects. These imaginative prints are beautifully detailed with attractive color and fine line work, and offer an interesting Meiji era take on the classic Tokaido subject. A great choice for collectors interested in life along the Tokaido Road.

Hakone in Sagami Province: Lake Yamanaka - Terrific design of a young samurai clinging to a rocky cliff high above Lake Yamaka at Hakone. Resting on one knee, he looks out over the landscape with a determined expression, Mt. Fuji cloaked in darkness in the distance as night falls. The circular inset at upper right shows a bird in flight next to a vine with colored autumn leaves. Beautiful shading in the water, mountain, and sky, and a handsome composition with the mountain peak rising up above the border of the bottom image. Boston Museum of Fine Arts has this image in its collection.
