Mainichi Shimbun Publisher - From a fine collection of mid-20th century Utamaro reprints published by Mainichi Shimbun. This small Tokyo publisher carved blocks and reprinted many of the great masterwork designs of the Edo era. Their work was exquisite with an emphasis on quality, not quantity. Note the exceptional detail, carefully shaded printing, fine mica backgrounds, embossing, and other deluxe techniques. Mainichi prints are perfect for the collector or for the highest quality reprint for display.
Nakahara in Sagami Province - A simple, but successful composition of local residents and travelers using a small road with a fantastic view of Fuji. As usual, Hokusai makes the scene interesting with extensive details. A lovely Fuji view and great piece for display. Also a nice choice for a collector.
Artist - Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
Image Size - 15" x 10" + margins as shown
