Series; Famous Places along the Tokaido Road (The Processional Tokaido), 1863
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

The Processional Tokaido - Handsome print from a Tokaido series done to commemorate the journey of the Shogun from Edo to Kyoto in 1863 to pay his respects to the Emperor. The Shogun's power was in decline at the time, and the procession had not been made for many years, so this was an important event. Many different artists contributed designs for the series, including Kunisada, Yoshitoshi, and Hiroshige II. This fantastic collaboration resulted in a total of 162 prints by 16 artists, issued by 24 publishers! These lively images show the procession winding through the countryside, stopping at villages, or taking part in special festivities to celebrate the occasion. Many prints provide a panoramic view of lovely scenery. Beautifully detailed, this historic series is a terrific choice for a collector.
