Hiroshige: Mount Fuji and the Sea at Miura
Artist: Utagawa Hiroshige
Title: The Sea at Miura in Sagami Province
Series: Thirty-six Views of Mt Fuji (Fuji sanju rokkei)
The Sea at Miura in Sagami Province (Soshu Miura no kaijo). Mount Fuji rises clear above the bay, bright pink clouds hugging its flanks. In the distance we see sailboats, and in the foreground two boats seem to be heading out to work. A pine-covered cliff is in the middle distance, and a rocky shore dotted with pines is in the foreground. Compares with the flawless British Museum example, with full margins and woodgrain evident in the sky.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
