Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Cherry Blossoms and Bird Fan Print
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.
Comments - A lovely, classic fan print by Hiroshige featuring a bird perched on a cherry branch covered with pink and white blossoms and buds. The poem on the fan reads "Now I will break off a branch of the wild cherry blossom and enjoy its beauty." A charming spring subject with soft shading.
