Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Carp
Grand Series of Fishes

Grand Series of Fishes - In the 1830s, Hiroshige designed a series of twenty oban size woodblocks of fish, published in two sets of ten prints each, with the second set released around 1840. This untitled series, sometimes called the Grand Series of Fishes, fits into the genre of kacho-e (birds and flowers prints), which focuses on carefully observed birds, insects, fish, and flowers in natural habitats.

Beautifully detailed varieties of fish and sea life are artfully arranged with grasses or plants against backgrounds with soft bokashi shading. Originals from this series are somewhat rare, but a second edition printed from the original blocks appeared shortly after Hiroshige's death.

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.
