Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Looking through the Pilings under the Bridge Fan Print
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 - Intriguing fan print design showing the pilings under a bridge from the point of view of a boatman. Great architectural detail, with two swallow flying above the water. We've never seen this Hiroshige subject in reprint before.
Artist - Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Image Size - Page size 9 1/8" x 12 3/4" Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Some faint spotting. Please see photos for details. Nice overall.
