Night Rain at Karasaki

Series; Eight Views of Omi

Eight Views of Omi - Handsome design from Hiroshige's unusual vertical "Eight Views of Omi" series. Each design is bordered with clouds and a verse across the top. These attractive images are nicely colored and feature fine bokashi shading. A rarely seen series and a nice example of Hiroshige's vertical format designs.

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.
