Series; Famous Views of the Sixty-odd Provinces
A Fuji Arts special offer auction
Sanuki Province, Distant View of Mount Zozu - Handsome view of travelers along the road in Sanuki Province, making their way through a mountain pass flanked by flowering shrubs. In the middleground, a farmer leads his horse along an embankment between rice fields, with a village nestled beneath the pine trees. Mount Zozu rises in the distance, with the rooftops of Kotohira, a popular pilgrimage site, peeking above the forest.
Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.
