Original Hiroshige II (1826 - 1869) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Noda Jewel River in Mutsu Province, 1863
Series; Six Jewel Rivers in the Provinces
The Noda Jewel River in Mutsu Province, 1863 - Lovely view of a beauty and her traveling companion stopping on the banks of the Noda River in Mutsu, one of the famous Six Jewel Rivers of Japan. She lifts the cloth draped over her head for a better look as a flock of plovers takes off from the water, their gray figures flying high into the sky. A large pine tree gracefully frames the scene. An attractive design with soft shading in the water and sky. A rarely seen Hiroshige II series.
