Shotei - Born in
Comments - Terrific shin hanga design of travelers hurrying for shelter during a sudden shower at Takaido. Two palanquin bearers rush towards a roadside shop, where other men are already waiting under cover, including a wandering monk with a basket hat called a komuso. A tall pine tree frames the scene with rain slanting across the softly shaded gray sky. A wonderful, atmospheric design by Shotei. Stamped "Made in Japan" on reverse at bottom edge.
