Outdoor Tea Stall at Fukuroi

Series; Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido

Hiroshige’s Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido - In 1832, Hiroshige first traveled from his home in Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto along the Tokaido road. The journey was an eye opening and life changing experience for him. As an urban man of Edo he had experienced life mainly in the capital. He immediately returned to Edo after the trip and began his masterwork woodblock series from the sketches he had made on his journey. Hiroshige's Tokaido prints are an opportunity to be transported back in time to see this world as Hiroshige did in the shadow of the Tokugawa Shogunate.

Fine Goyo Studio Reprints - At Fuji Arts we are excited to make this very special offer of reprints from the studio of 20th century master Hashiguchi Goyo. These prints are from a single set of reprints produced in 1920 right before Goyo’s death. Goyo’s fine reprints are considered to be the highest quality reprints produced in the 20th century.

Goyo is the undisputed master of the 20th century shin-hanga movement. A secondary part of his career was reprinting beautiful old ukiyo-e prints from the golden age of the print period. In 1920, much of Goyo’s artistic work was devoted to creating these incredible woodblock reprints. Each print was painstakingly copied from an original and stamped with the Goyo circular seal. Line by line, color by color, the prints were recreated in Goyo’s studio to perfectly emulate these masterworks of ukiyo-e. Goyo took pride in this work and the release of his reprints was met with great acclaim. Today, original Goyo reprints are highly sought after by collectors and extremely rare to find. An exceptional opportunity!

Outdoor Tea Stall at Fukuroi - Wonderful scene of a roadside tea stall at Fukuroi, with fields stretching into the distance at right. Palanquin bearers stop for a rest, one man bending over to light his pipe at the smoking fire as a woman tends a large kettle hanging from a tree branch. A lovely rural view with soft bokashi shading and fine embossing on the swirling smoke.
