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 - Magnificent pillar print design by Hiroshige featuring a golden pheasant perched on a snow-covered slope dotted with young pine trees. The colorful plumage of the bird contrast beautifully with the snow and wintry gray sky. Wonderfully drawn with fine detail in the feathers, and soft shading on the hill A beautiful birds and flowers subject in the rare o-tanzaku format.
