Ishiyakushi, Station No. 45 by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Ishiyakushi, Station No. 45
Series; Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido (Reisho Tokaido)

6 mm Watanabe Reprint - This beautiful woodblock was published by the Watanabe Company and bears the important Watanabe round 6 mm seal. These old Watanabe prints are some of the finest woodblock reprints ever done. Watanabe began using the 6 mm seal after World War II ended, and it was in use from 1946 to 1957. These terrific Watanabe reprints are a wonderful way to collect a masterwork from the Edo era at an affordable price.

The Reisho Tokaido - Completed around 1850, Hiroshige's Reisho Tokaido is named for the reisho or formal style of writing used in the series title. It is also referred to as the Marusei Tokaido after the name of the publisher. Prints from the Reisho Tokaido are extremely rare as all the blocks from the set were destroyed by fire shortly after completion, so very few impressions were made. These handsome reprints by Watanabe are beautifully printed with crisp line work and fine bokashi shading. A great opportunity to acquire a fine reprint of these rarely seen Reisho Tokaido designs.

Artist - Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)
Image Size - 8 3/8" x 13 1/2" + margins as shown
Condition - With excellent color and detail. Please see photos for details. Nice overall.
