Series; Miracles of Kannon (Kannon reigenki)

Miracles of Kannon - This large series designed in 1858-1859 by Toyokuni III and Kunisada II in collaboration with Hiroshige II pairs miracles performed by Kannon, the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy, with scenes of temples in the Western, Central, and Eastern provinces of Japan. Toyokuni III created the large figural scenes at the bottom of each image for most of the series, with Kunisada II contributing a few designs, while Hiroshige II designed the landscape views across the top of each print. A wonderful combination of expressive figures and lyrical scenic views, these interesting prints feature lively color and fine detail. A nice unusual series, and a great choice for collectors interested in classic Japanese tales or Buddhist imagery.
