Japanese Woodblock Print Hiroshige Fish Banner Shimotani Uoei Seal
This is one of the most famous Japanese woodblock prints “Fish Banner” from the famous Series “One Hundred Views of Famous Places in Edo” from the famous Edo artist Hiroshige Utagawa (1797-1858) with Shimotani Uoei seal made in 1950s to 1960s IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. The exact same woodblock print is displayed in the book "Ukiyo-e 250 Years of Japanese Art” written by Roni Neuer and Susugu Yoshida and published by Mayflower Books USA 1979, page 320. This woodblock print is a part of a large number of gorgeous, different-styled Japanese woodblock print collections in my family. We are gradually selling them. The size of this woodblock print is 15 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches. The colors, which are vivid and vibrant, are in layers on the prints. The four borders (margins) of the woodblock print are intact. This print is not attached to any backing paper or cardboard and strong ink bleeding through can be seen from the back of the Japanese mulberry paper. The artist’s chop mark is at the lower left corner of the print while the title of the print and its series are at the upper right corner. The Shimotani Uoei seal is in the lower left border. As far as I can tell there are no defects, foxing, or stains, this woodblock print is IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. I believe this woodblock print is a Showa’s re-cut. It is hard to find this kind of beautiful work from Hiroshige in the public nowadays and it is definitely an incredible piece for collecting.
