Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Swallow in Rain Pillar Print
Comments - Terrific pillar print of a swallow flying in a rainstorm past the wooden pillar of a bridge. Rain slants down across the gray sky, and three fish swim against the current below. A handsome design with soft shading in the water and sky. Only the second time we've seen this subject in reprint.
