Original Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Print
Twilight Hill at Meguro in the Eastern Capital
Series; Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji, 1891 Memorial Edition
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

Hiroshige's Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji - In Japan, Mt. Fuji is a sacred place and a symbol of the country itself. Rising majestically near the center of Japan, Fuji dominates the landscape and the Japanese national identity. Hiroshige's wonderful Fuji views show the mountain in each of the four seasons from a variety of vantage points. Hiroshige utilized a vertical full oban format to create dramatic and breathtaking views of this most revered landmark, often framing the peak From the urban city center of Edo to cherry blossom viewing in a small village to the fantastic crashing wave off Satta, the mountain remains a constant, serene presence from both near and far. Seen less frequently than some of his more well-known series, "Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji" ranks as one of Hiroshige's best vertical format series. This print is from an 1891 Memorial Edition of the 1858 series.
