Chiryu by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Original Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Print
Chiryu
Series; Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido (Kyoka Tokaido)
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

The Kyoka Tokaido - After the incredible success of his original "Hoeido Tokaido" in the early 1830s, Hiroshige released several other series illustrating life along the famed Tokaido Road. He designed this chuban-sized series in 1840 - 1842, published by Sanoki. Each design features a comic poem called a "kyoka," so the series is called the "Kyoka Tokaido." It is sometimes known as the "Sanoki Tokaido" after the publisher. A great look at travelers making this historic journey in nineteenth-century Japan, featuring striking scenic views and more intimate scenes of life along the Tokaido. This charming series is rarely seen.

Special detail - This print comes with a separate label from the Gallery Beniya in Tokyo (see below). An interesting provenance.
