Hiroshige: Shinagawa Susaki
Artist: Utagawa Hiroshige
Title: Shinagawa Susaki
Series: One Hundred Famous Views of Edo: Meisho Edo Hyakkei
Date: 1856, 4th month
Susaki Shrine, honoring Benten, overlooks the beautiful expanse of Edo Bay. Lower left is a part of the pleasure quarters, and lower right we see a pedestrian bridge. The early impression highlights the woodgrain and the effortless way the sailboats float on the water, although only waveless Prussian Blue holds them up graphically. From the series “100 Famous Views of Edo”.
Condition: Excellent impression and color. Very good condition.
