Returning Sails at Otomo by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Returning Sails at Otomo
Series; Eight Views of Kanazawa

Yuyudo Publisher - In the early 20th century, the Yuyudo publishing house had already distinguished themselves as one of the finest publishers in Japan. They adhered to the same exacting standards of 19th century publishers while some of their publishing colleagues took shortcuts. In the 1950's, as interest Edo era woodblock prints was reigniting, Yuyudo embarked upon a project to produce reprints by the great masters from the Golden Age of Ukiyo-e. They hired the finest woodblock printers and carvers in the world for this endeavor. The resulting prints were some of the highest quality reproductions ever made. We are pleased to offer this beautiful reprint from the Yuyudo publisher in our auctions today.  Yuyudo prints are exceptionally well done and very finely printed. Each bears a Yuyudo Publisher stamp on the margin or reverse. Bid now on prints from this fantastic collection!

Eight Views of Kanazawa - In his "Eight Views of Kanazawa," Hiroshige introduces a variation on the traditional theme of "Eight Views of Omi" by shifting the locations to the town of Kanazawa. During the Edo era, Kanazawa grew to become an important city as the seat of the powerful Maeda clan. These attractive landscapes are rarely seen in reprint, and provide an interesting comparison with Hiroshige's "Eight Views of Omi" series. Beautifully colored and printed, with fine bokashi shading.
