Charles W. Bartlett: Miono-Matsubara; Mt Fuji at Sunset (Sold)

  • Sold.

Artist: Charles W. Bartlett
Title: Miono-Matsubara; Mt Fuji at Sunset
Date: 1916

Mount Fuji rises against an orange sky at sunset as sailboats carrying fishermen home glide across the smooth water. Pre-1923 earthquake design. This work lacks Bartlett’s pencil signature. As it was purchased in Japan, it was probably a print that Watanabe did not have the opportunity to have the artist sign. There are no issues with later impressions of this print as the blocks were destroyed in 1923. Rare design.

Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
Dimensions: ôban 25.3 x 37.8 cm
Publisher: Watanabe Shôzaburô.
Literature: See “A Printmaker In Paradise”, number 34, page 120.
