Evening Snow at Asakusa  by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Evening Snow at Asakusa
Series; Eight Views in Famous Places in Edo

Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.

Evening Snow at Asakusa - Fantastic triptych of three beauties walking through the snow the Sumida River. Each carries an umbrella under the gently falling snow. The beauty at right wears a short coat over her kimono, while the other two have scarves wrapped around their heads against the color winter air. Their tall wooden geta sandals leave distinctive marks in the snow, and a small dog licks its front paw at far left. A large wooden bridge arches across the river behind them, the spire of Asakusa Temple visible on the opposite shore. A wonderful Hiroshige beauty subject and a classic winter landscape with fine shading in the water and sky.
