Original Tokuriki (1902 - 1999) Japanese Woodblock Print
Mt. Yoshino in Spring
Series; Eight Views on the Yamato Road
From the Uchida Publisher Archives - We were fortunate to purchase a wonderful collection of 20th century prints directly from the archives of the Uchida Art Company of Kyoto. The classic 20th century prints offered in our auction from this collection are all first edition prints of various designs released by the Uchida company in the mid-20th century. These first edition prints are unusual to come by in a nice group as they were generally sold off as they were produced. This excellent collection was held back and recently sold from the Uchida archives. These prints are a nice opportunity to collect a lovely 20th century print, or perfect as reasonably priced gifts. Don't miss out on these prints, once they sell out, we won't have them again!
Mt. Yoshino in Spring - Intriguing view of the guardian statue at the temple entrance gate at the base of Mt. Yoshino, the wooden structure plastered with stickers from visitors on pilgrimage. In the valley below, pale pink and white cherry blossoms contrast with dark green pine trees. A fascinating perspective.
