Dawn of the Ancient Capital

Comments - Lovely view of dawn in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan. Trees and a temple appear in silhouette along the water's edge, the spires of the pagodas reflected in the water. A warm glow fills the sky as the sun begins to rise, the light appearing a deep rose on the water. A beautiful design with an intense color palette. A notation in pencil in the bottom margin reads "Seven editions and eight colors, self-engraved and self-printed."
