Inoue Yasuji (1864 - 1889) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Eruption of Mt. Bandai

A Fuji Arts Winter Exhibition Item - We are excited to have purchased a couple Japanese collections with a range of rare and sought after designs. We’ve put them together in a winter exhibition and will post them over one week. The items range from Edo through Meiji and up to contemporary. So, there’s something for everyone. The unifying theme is that each print is a great example or very rare item to find in the market. Enjoy shopping the Winter Exhibition.

Comments - Incredible depiction of the eruption of Mt. Bandai in 1888, sending up chunks of rock and debris, which rain down over the countryside as lava begins to flow from the peak. Panic ensues in the village at lower left, with people running for shelter and trees blowing wildly. Boulders hail down over the thatched-roof houses, and at upper left, a home tumbles through the sky upside-down, uprooted by the explosion. A fantastic, dramatic image, with a dark and ominous atmosphere. Beautifully detailed with fine bokashi shading. Very rare to find in reprint.
