Evening Snow at Takanawa by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Evening Snow at Takanawa
Series; The Eight Snow Scenes in the Eastern Capital

Fine printing from the respected Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha - These classic designs were produced by the well known Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha amidst a resurgence of interest in ukiyo-e. Like many of these traditional businesses, the woodblock print craft was passed down through generations, and the Oedo Mokuhansha company was formed by descendents of an Edo era publisher. These are nice prints of the highest quality standards and an excellent choice if you are looking for fine old woodblock reprints.

Evening Snow at Takanawa - Lovely Hiroshige night scene from his "Eight Snow Scenes in the Eastern Capital" series. Travelers make their way along the snowy embankment at Takanawa, a groom leading a plodding horse with its head down as bearers carry a palanquin in the opposite direction. The masts of fishing boats anchored in the harbor for the evening rise against the night sky as snow falls quietly. A beautiful winter view with the deep blue of the water contrasting against the white snow and dark sky.
