Swallows, Peach Blossoms, and Full Moon

Yuyudo Publisher - In the early 20th century, the Yuyudo publishing house had already distinguished themselves as one of the finest publishers in Japan. They adhered to the same exacting standards of 19th century publishers while some of their publishing colleagues took shortcuts. In the 1950's, as interest Edo era woodblock prints was reigniting, Yuyudo embarked upon a project to produce reprints by the great masters from the Golden Age of Ukiyo-e. They hired the finest woodblock printers and carvers in the world for this endeavor. The resulting prints were some of the highest quality reproductions ever made. We are pleased to offer this beautiful reprint from the Yuyudo publisher in our auctions today.  Yuyudo prints are exceptionally well done and very finely printed.

Comments - Beautiful design of two swallows fluttering around the gracefully curving branches of a peach tree in bloom. A full moon glows at upper right, showcasing the red buds and blossoms of the tree. A lovely Hiroshige nature subject. The verse reads: Spring has come and all the streams are filled with peach blossoms. Nobody knows where Heaven is, but all wonder.
