Original Shin-hanga & Modern artist (unsigned) Japanese Woodblock Print
Beauty Walking by Moonlight
Comments - Handsome monochromatic scene of a beauty in silhouette walking down a street at night, carrying a paper lantern as she approaches a street lamp. A weeping cherry tree covered with blossoms frames a view of an enormous full moon. This is a shin-hanga interpretation of an earlier Hiroshige design with the addition of the moon and trees. It is falsely signed "Hiroshige," like to appeal to the tourist market. An attractive subject that would make a great framed display.
