Original woodblock print - Rekisentei Eiri (active ca. 1789-1801) - The Koyo Tama River in the KII Province from a series of "Six Jewel Rivers" - 1795-1800
RARE. Very difficult to find any available example of work by this artist.
Only about twenty designs by Eiri for prints are known! Nothing is recorded about Rekisentei Eiri. In fact, he is often confused with Chokyosai Eiri (act. second half 1790s), a pupil of Eishi. Stylistically it seems clear that they are two different artists. Some influence of Eishi may be seen in Rekisentei Eiri’s work, but there is no evidence that he was Eishi’s pupil. The caracter Ei in his name is written differently from the one used in the Eishi school. Backed with thin paper. A few mendings from the reverse side, see photos. Faded colors, some wrinkles. Attached to a mat in two places at the top of the print.
