Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Roses and Small Bird Fan Print
Series; Contemporary Beauties of the Pleasure Quarters
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.
Roses and Small Bird Fan Print - Handsome fan print of a small bird perched among the branches of a flowering rose bush, the blossoms rendered in various shades of pink, yellow, and white. The vivid red of the fan makes a dramatic contrast with the flowers, and the background is a shimmering pale silver mica. Would make a lovely display.
