Very rare and original xylograph - Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) - 甲斐大月の原 - No. 31 from the series '36 Views of Mount Fuji'-1891
'Memorial Edition' reprint (see texts in the margins) 1891 by Kodama Matashichi (active from 1881 to 1894). Superb Hiroshige woodblock print, rarely offered for sale.
The 'Memorial Edition' series consists of prints made with the original blocks and, in some cases, with the addition of new blocks.
Memorable woodblock print by Hiroshige, very difficult to find in first edition, superbly detailed with fine lines and very subtle depiction of the shadows.
These reprints are a great opportunity to acquire these old classic Hiroshige prints.
Öban format: 356 x 237 mm
Paper lined print to be mounted in the album of the series.
In very good condition, fresh and vivid colours, no holes, no creases. Small piece missing on the paper lining; it does not affect the woodblock print.
See the photos.
