Hiroshige Woodblock Print Evening Snow At Asakusa
Hiroshige was famous for his work as a landscape artist. He also created works of art of bijinga (beauties). This centre piece woodblock print from a Triptych is a fine example of his portrayal of Japanese beauties. A bijinga treads carefully across the snow laden river bank as the falling snow covers her janome gasa (coarse oil paper umbrella). Depicted in the background is the Hanatogawa section of Asakusa along the Sumida river. A man wearing a straw raincoat is poling his barge in midstream. Originally published as a triptych each woodblock print stands up as an independent work of art.
In very good condition with good bleed through to the verso.
