Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Ama no Hashidate
Series; Famous Places in Japan
Fine printing from the respected Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha - These classic designs were produced by the well known Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha amidst a resurgence of interest in ukiyo-e. Like many of these traditional businesses, the woodblock print craft was passed down through generations, and the Oedo Mokuhansha company was formed by descendents of an Edo era publisher. These are nice prints of the highest quality standards and an excellent choice if you are looking for fine old woodblock reprints.
Ama no Hashidate - Ama no Hashidate Terrific bird's eye view of the Bay of Miyazu and the "ama no hashidate," a famous long, narrow spit of land covered in pine trees. Ships are returning home for the evening as a rosy glow spreads across the sky, their sails forming a diagonal line. A small Shinto temple can be seen among the pines. Ama no hashidate was considered one of the most beautiful seaside views in Japan. A striking design with lovely color and fine bokashi shading in the deep blue water.
