Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Kai Province, Monkey Bridge

Series; Famous Views of the Sixty-odd Provinces

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.

Kai Province, Monkey Bridge - Terrific depiction of the famous Monkey Bridge in Kai Province, one of Hiroshige's favorite subjects. In this beautiful print, Hiroshige shows the Monkey Bridge in autumn with pedestrians crossing over it, framed by maple trees turning red. Below, the Katsura River eddies as it cascades over large rocks. Lovely use of color in this fine print design.
