Japanese Woodblock Print Hiroshige Utagawa Moon above Willow River Oedo Printmaker
This is one of the most famous Japanese woodblock prints “Moon above Willow River” from the famous Series “Sixty-nine Stations of Kisoji Street” from the famous Edo artist Hiroshige Utagawa (1797-1858) published by Oedo Printmaker in 1950S IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. 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 signature and chop mark are close to the middle right edge of the print while the series title “Sixty-nine Stations of Kisoji Street” and station name are at the upper left corner of the print. The publisher Oedo chop mark and the carver and printer’s chop marks are in the lower right 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 early Showa’s re-cut made around 1950s. 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.
