Moon Over Akebi Bridge. This is an example for the printers to use while making the edition of the work; it is a proof. This way all subsequent prints would have very similar colors and effects, as the printers could compare it to this one. Lacks the Watanabe seal as it was not approved for sale outside of the studio.
Condition: Very good impression, color and condition. This was a proof example, so the seals are different from the final work.
