Snowy Gorge of the Fuji River by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Snowy Gorge of the Fuji River

Takamizawa Reprints - Handsome reprint by the venerable Takamizawa publisher. Takamizawa was known as one of the finest reprint publishers of the 20th century, and produced some of the highest quality ukiyo-e woodblock reprints of all time. Drawing on the traditions and methods of the Edo era, the prints were produced replicating original Edo era colors and printed on beautiful handmade paper. The printers worked with the utmost care and great attention to detail, masterfully reproducing color and line work. All prints bear the red or brown "Takamizawa" seal on the reverse attesting to the Takamizawa publication of these prints. A great opportunity to acquire a fine reprint of a classic ukiyo-e design.

Comments - Fantastic Hiroshige kakemono or vertical diptych depicting a dramatic view of the deep blue Fuji River winding through a gorge in winter. A few boatmen make their way along the quiet water and a solitary peasant crosses a narrow bridge stretching across the canyon. Snow falls gently over the peaceful landscape, a large mountain looming in the background. An outstanding image with fine shading in the water. Would make a striking display.

Artist - Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)
Image Size - 5 1/2" x 16 3/8" + margins as shown
Condition - Excellent with no issues to report.
