A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

Hiroshige's Gyosho Tokaido - After the incredible success of Hiroshige’s original Tokaido in the 1830s, the artist designed several other series illustrating life along the Tokaido road. Published around 1841 - 1844, the Gyosho Tokaido is so-named after the style of informal script (called gyosho) used in the title cartouche. Prints from this series are rarely seen, and make a nice complement to Hiroshige's more well-known Tokaido series.
