Moon at Hongo in the Eastern Capital by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Moon at Hongo in the Eastern Capital

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

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.

Comments - Lovely night scene of three dressed beauties strolling through the Hongo district in Edo on a moonlit night. The woman in the center pauses to look up at the glowing full moon as flocks of geese descend for the evening. She wears a black kimono bordered with Genji symbols, blossoms, and leaves over a red under robe with a blue print collar, tied with a plum colored obi that reverses to a blue floral design. Daimyo's mansions line the street behind them, with many pedestrians walking along the road. A beautiful Hiroshige triptych design.

Image Size - 14 3/4" x 30 1/8" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Three separate panels. Please see photos for details. Good overall.
