Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Peonies and Bird
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 - Lovely Hiroshige kacho-e or birds and flowers print of a bird perched among white and pink peonies. A beautiful, richly colored subject with the colorful flowers set off by a background softly shaded from green to warm golden yellow. A wonderful choice for display.
