Kiyochika: Tenmagu Shrine at Kameido Temple
Artist: Kobayashi Kiyochika
Title: Tenmagu Shrine at Kameido Temple
Series: One Hundred Views of Musashi Province (Musashi hyakkei no uchi)
We get a closeup of not only the wisteria flowers, but also the twining of the ancient trunk, set against the backdrop of the famous Kameido Drum Bridge. This view echoes a similar view of this bridge n Hiroshige’s “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo” series.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition.
