Original Kunisada III (1848 - 1920) Japanese Woodblock Print
Comments - Interesting view of the Kudanzaka Lighthouse in Tokyo, the rugged stone base towering above the pedestrians and a rickshaw below. The weathervane of the lighthouse extends above the frame of the image, adding a sense of depth. Cherry blossoms frame the scene at right with the rooftops of the city stretching out in the distance. A striking composition.
