“Sukiyagashi in the Eastern Capital” (Toto sukiyagashi), from the series “Thirty-six Views of Mt Fuji”. Clean, fresh view of Mount Fuji in a clear sky after snow. The snow blanket gives the scene an almost sleeping feeling, and the figures on the stone bridge are the only signs of the necessities of the activities of daily life. The shapes of the houses all echo the shape of the great mountain.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
