Shimonoseki in Nagato Province  by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Shimonoseki in Nagato Province
Series; Harbors of 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.

Shimonoseki in Nagato Province - Beautiful scenes of boats in the harbor at Shimonoseki in Nagato Province. In the center, a ferryman takes two women out to a ship, his assistant drawing the small boat closer to another craft with a ladder leaning against the large vessel. A couple can be seen through the window of the craft. Beautiful shading in the deep blue water and sky, with a rosy glow spreading along the horizon. A terrific design from an unusual series, seldom seen in reprint.
