Goyu: Motono Plain on the Old Road, 1847 - 1852 by Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)

Original Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Print
Goyu: Motono Plain on the Old Road, 1847 - 1852
Series; Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido (Reisho Tokaido)

The Reisho Tokaido - Completed between 1847 - 1852, Hiroshige's Reisho Tokaido is named for the reisho or formal style of writing used in the series title. It is also referred to as the Marusei Tokaido after the name of the publisher. Prints from the Reisho Tokaido are extremely rare as all the blocks from the set were destroyed by fire shortly after completion, so very few impressions were made. These handsome designs are nicely printed with crisp line work and fine bokashi shading. We rarely come across woodblocks from the Reisho series, so if this image appeals to you, bid now!

Artist - Hiroshige (1797 - 1858)
Image Size - 8 3/8" x 13 5/8" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Backed with paper and remargined. Vertical folds. Large loss, a few smaller losses and holes, repaired. Slight toning and soiling, a few creases. Please see photos for details.
