Artist: Kobayashi Kiyochika
Title: Moon Seen Beyond at Shinagawa
Series: One Hundred Views of Musashi Province (Musashi hyakkei no uchi)
Date: 1884/11(Meiji 17)
A full moon rises above Shinagawa, as seen through a gauzy mosquito net set up for sleeping. Henry Smith consideres this one of the best of all of Kiyochika’s landscape prints and notes that “The rendering of the netting itself is rmarkable for a kind of realism that would have been impossible for Hiroshige”. With extensive mica applied throughout.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
