Shop the collection this month, and watch for the “A Fuji Arts Curated Tokyo Collection Print” subtitle to locate and shop from this beautiful collection. Bid or “buy now” as these fine prints are hard to come by.
The Ide Jewel River in Yamashiro Province, 1847 - 1848 - Lovely image of beauties wading across the Ide Jewel River in Yamashiro Province, one of Japan's famous Six Jewel Rivers. The beauty in the center watches her footsteps carefully as she holds onto a towel held by her companion on the shore, lifting up her long kimono sleeve to keep it from getting wet. A third woman follows behind, biting on the side of a towel as she reaches forward with one hand. Flowering shrubs grow long the water's edge, and blossoming cherry trees frame a view of the blue sky. A beautiful design with wonderful detail.
