Fine printing from the respected Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha - These classic designs were produced by the well known Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha amidst a resurgence of interest in ukiyo-e. Like many of these traditional businesses, the woodblock print craft was passed down through generations, and the Oedo Mokuhansha company was formed by descendents of an Edo era publisher. These are nice prints of the highest quality standards and an excellent choice if you are looking for fine old woodblock reprints.
Comments - Lovely design by Hiroshige featuring a pheasant perched on a rocky ledge, framed by colorful chrysanthemums. The feathers of the bird are beautifully detailed, and the background is softly shaded from gray to blue. The verse at top left reads "Chrysanthemum scent -- every time a drop of dew, drips down from inside!" A classic Hiroshige kacho-e (birds and flowers print) subject, perfect for display.
