Product Description

Original Hiroshige (1797 - 1858) Japanese Woodblock Print Nissaka. 8 5/8" x 6 1/2" + margins as shown.Hiroshige's Figure Tokaido - In 1832 Hiroshige traveled with an entourage of the shogun's officials from Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto along the Tokaido road. His journey led him to produce many different series based on this often traveled and famous route. This wonderful edition designed in 1852, called the Figure or Jimbutsu Tokaido, features large format figures set against the natural beauty of the landscape. It's an intriguing series, since Hiroshige's other Tokaido groups focus primarily on nature, rather than on man. These fantastic original Hiroshige woodblocks offer a different perspective of life along the Tokaido, with beauties and samurai encountering farmers, peasants, and vendors along the road. A great opportunity to add a Hiroshige Tokaido print to your collection. CONDITION This print with excellent detail as shown. Small hole and a couple small nicks at edges. Slight soiling, a couple light creases. Please see photos for details. Good overall. (63)
