Seven Ri Beach in Sagami Province, 1858 by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Original Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Print
Seven Ri Beach in Sagami Province, 1858
Series; Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji

Hiroshige's Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji - In Japan, Mt. Fuji is a sacred place and a symbol of the country itself. Rising majestically near the center of Japan, Fuji dominates the landscape and the Japanese national identity. Hiroshige completed designs for his last series, "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji," in 1858. Following a tradition established by Hokusai, Hiroshige’s wonderful series show the mountain in each of the four seasons, from a variety of vantage points. Hiroshige utilized a vertical full oban format to create dramatic and breathtaking views of this most revered landmark. Views range from the urban city center of Edo to cherry blossom viewing in a small village and the fantastic crashing wave at Awa. Seen less frequently than some of his more well-known series, "Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji" ranks as one of Hiroshige's best vertical format series.

Seven Ri Beach in Sagami Province, 1858 - Attractive view of the famous Seven Ri Beach in Sagami, with a father and his two children walking along the shore as waves lap at the sand. Two beauties enjoy the view from a teahouse at right, and the snow-capped peak of Mt. Fuji rises in the distance. A handsome design with fine bokashi shading in the water and sky.
