Title: Fuji Near Kamiide
Date: Ca. 1929-32
Mount Fuji rises against a brilliant sunset sky, fields spreading out before us in this winter scene. Bare trees stand foreground, and a quilt of planted fields creates texture in the middle of the design. Towering above the plain we see darker gullies leading to the eminent snowy peak of Fuji-san as it rises against a brilliant orange sky with purple clouds.
