Autumn Moon at Seba

Series; Sixty-nine Stations of the Kisokaido

The Sixty-nine Stations of the Kisokaido - Hiroshige's fantastic Kisokaido series was designed in collaboration with Keisei Eisen in the mid-1830s. Comprised of seventy prints, Eisen contributed 23 images to the series, with Hiroshige providing the rest. This masterpiece series chronicles life along the Kiso Highway, the upper road along the mountains from Edo to Kyoto, mirroring the lower Tokaido. Hiroshige's Kisokaido landscapes maintain his typical balance between figures and nature, with masterful depictions of weather and seasons, and a number of especially lovely moonlit scenes. These poetic and atmospheric views offer a captivating vision of the beautiful and often dramatic countryside of Japan.

Autumn Moon at Seba - Beautiful scene of boatmen poling the crafts along the Narai River at dusk. Reeds grow along the water's edge with graceful willow trees hanging above the water and framing a view of the full autumn moon. Rooftops can be seen in the distance beneath clouds tinged with soft peach. A lovely design, considered the masterpiece of Hiroshige's Kisokaido series.
