Ukiyo-e Masterworks Lithograph Reproduction Set - Interesting lithograph reproduction set which includes five designs by Hokusai and one by Hiroshige. The subjects by Hokusai include his masterwork "Great Wave" and "The Back of Mt. Fuji from the Minobu River" from the series "Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji," a fan print with a snake and pheasant, "Kirifuri Waterfall on Mt. Kurokami in Shimotsuke Province" from the series "A Tour of Japanese Waterfalls," and a scene of women divers from his series "One Hundred Poems Explained by the Nurse." The Hiroshige subject is "Autumn Moon at Seba" from the series "Sixty-nine Stations of the Kisokaido." Each design is mounted at the top corners to a heavy backing sheet, and comes with a paper folder with Hokusai's name on the front. A great way to collect some of the most famous ukiyo-e imagery. Please note, these are lithograph reproductions, not woodblocks.
