Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Embankment of the Sumida River
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.
The Embankment of the Sumida River - Beautiful winter scene of a few people walking along the embankment of the Sumida River at nighttime. Snow falls gently over the darkening sky, and snow-covered pines line the deep blue water, with a tall tree in the center dominating the skyline. A handsome, serene design with soft shading in the water and sky.
