Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Cuckoo Flying through Rain
Comments - Beautiful design of a cuckoo flying through a rainstorm. Raindrops slant across the gray sky above a tree silhouetted in dark gray, with gusts of wind sweeping across the scene. The poem reads:
Two voices crossing high over Gomosaki-- a cuckoo and rain.
A lovely atmospheric print with soft shading in the sky and delicate embossing in the feathers. A beautiful reprint of this Hiroshige design.
