Original Yokoyama Taikan (1868 - 1958) Japanese Woodblock Print
Mt. Fuji and Cherry Blossoms
Fuji Arts’ special acquisition from Momose - This print is from a beautiful group of limited edition prints recently acquired from the archives of the publisher, The Momose Print Company of Tokyo. We purchased the entire balance of the publisher’s limited-edition inventory of all designs. They are only available on the secondary market and have become increasingly difficult to find. The prints were originally offered in a shin-hanga limited edition promotion from Momose. The Shinsui and Kaburagi beauties were sold for 280,000 yen each (approx. $2,750).
Comments - Fantastic image of the snow-covered peak of Mt. Fuji rising above dark greenish clouds, with blossoming cherry trees in the foreground. A striking large format design with beautiful bokashi shading. This print is from a limited edition of 300, and comes with the original certificate noting the edition size, but the certificate does not have an individual number on it.
