Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Full Moon at Tsukuda

Shima Art Company - Founded in 1908 in New York City by Kobe-born E. T. Shima, the Shima Art Company began publishing shin-hanga prints and ukiyo-reprints in the late 1920s, working with two companies in Japan to produce the woodblock prints. These lovely reprints accurately reproduce the fine line work and coloring of the original designs. Most bear the Shima seal, a crane with outstretched wings over Mt. Fuji. In 1940, the well-known Japanese print collector Robert O. Muller bought the company, renaming it the Robert Lee Gallery in October 1940. A great opportunity to add a classic ukiyo-e subject to your collection.

Comments - Beautiful evening scene of a full moon glowing high above the water at Tsukuda. Ships are anchored for the night in the harbor, and a man is seen in silhouette poling a small boat along sea, which is dappled with warm yellow reflections from the moon. Lovely color and fine bokashi shading. This is a rare 1930’s reprint of the Hiroshige original by the Shima Art Company (see details on Shima).
