Original Kiyochika (1847 - 1915) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Ferry Crossing at Hashiba, Tokyo
Series; One Hundred Views of Musashi
One Hundred Views of Musashi - Kiyochika's 1884 series "One Hundred Views of Musashi" depicts scenes of Tokyo, which lies in Musashi Province. Although the title refers to one hundred views, only thirty-four subjects were produced. Kiyochika followed the style of Hiroshige's "One Hundred Views of Edo," using similar compositions to provide updated views of Meiji Tokyo. Many designs include large foreground elements to frame a distant view in the background. A rarely seen Kiyochika series, nicely composed and detailed.
