Fujiyama; First Light of the Sun
Date: 1926
Oversized work showing the magical moment at down where the first light of the sun hits the summit of Mount Fuji. The sky glows with subtle shades of orange, pink and purple; colors which are here completely unfaded. A rare design from the series “Ten Views of Fuji.” At more than 70 cm wide, this was a work of unprecedented size, and Yoshida purchased a huge mountain cherry tree to be able to produce this and several other oversized prints.
Size: 58.5 x 75 cm (paper size)
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition. A few minor wrinkles near margin.
Sealed: Jizuri (“self-printed”) in ink
