Bird’s eye view of the impressive Iwasaki estate, from the set of eight that were privately commissioned by the Mitsubishi Company. The Iwasaki family were owners of Mitsubishi, and they initially approached the artist Kaburagi Kiyokata for the commission. Kiyokata recommended his pupil Hasui, as Kiyokata was not a landscape specialist. Neither series nor print title appear on the prints. Only the garden and one of the celebrated pavilions remain of the property today. Large nagaban format. Pre-earthquake design.
