The Night Scenes Series - Lovely design from a series of 21 night scenes first published by Hasegawa/Nishinomiya in the 1910s. Subjects are evening and night views, primarily printed in shades of blue, many with glowing moons or twinkling lights and figures in silhouette. The series was quite popular with editions printed up through the 1930s and even later. Beautifully colored and printed, these classic shin-hanga designs are a favorite with collectors.
A Fishing Boat - Handsome view of a lone fisherman at night, leaning over the edge of his boat as he pulls in a net, a warm glow coming from the fire basket. Figures in silhouette make their way across the bridge above, stars twinkling in the sky. A lovely design, beautifully colored and shaded.
