Toeizan Temple, Ueno, rare provenance, see details - Beautiful spring view of cherry trees in bloom at Toeizan Temple in Ueno. Visitors stroll about the grounds, and walk along a path up the slope at right. The structure beautifully frames a view of the park, with cherry trees lining the walkways, interspersed with towering pine trees. An attractive landscape with a handsome composition. The first time we've seen this subject.

From the Huguette Beres Collection - The reverse features the circular "Beres" seal of the world-renowned Japanese woodblock collector and dealer Huguette Beres, who died in 1999. Beres, who founded the Galerie Beres in Paris in 1951, amassed one of the finest private collections of ukiyo-e prints in the world, which was sold at auction by Sotheby's in 2002 and 2003. See example of seal below. A great opportunity to purchase a woodblock with a fascinating provenance.
