Fujieda: Fording the Seto River, Station 23 by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Original Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Print
Fujieda: Fording the Seto River, Station 23
Series; Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road (Gyosho Tokaido), 1841 – 1844

Hiroshige's Gyosho Tokaido - After the incredible success of Hiroshige’s original Hoeido Tokaido in the 1830s, the artist designed several other series illustrating life along the Tokaido road. Named after the style in which the series title is written, the Gyosho Tokaido was published around 1841 - 1844. It features lively scenes focusing on the activities of travelers, winding through a rocky valley or climbing a steep mountain, pausing for a rest or stopping in a busy village or port. These charming designs are attractively colored and most feature fine bokashi shading. A nice complement to the more commonly seen Hoeido or Great Tokaido.

Image Size - 7 5/8” x 12 1/2" + margins as shown
Condition - With excellent color and detail. Some soiling. A couple holes, repaired. Please see photos for details. Nice overall.
