The Drum Bridge at Kameido Tenjin Shrine

Series; Famous Bridges in Japan

Publisher - Adachi from a rare series of Edo masterwork designs. Adachi publisher seal in margin or on reverse.

Adachi was one of the most respected publishers of the 20th century. Their woodblocks were printed to the highest standards with excellent color and fine detail. Founded in 1925, Adachi also chose interesting and varied subjects for their prints and was the only publisher of many famous old ukiyo-e images.

The Drum Bridge at Kameido Tenjin Shrine - Dramatic view of the famous Drum Bridge at Kameido Tenjin Shrine, with visitors climbing the steep structure and enjoying a view of the water below. The soft shading in the water, the clouds drifting across the scene, and the absence of a horizon line give the scene a floating, ethereal appearance. A design image from this interesting series.

Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.

Artist - Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
