Shinsui: Mount Fuji in the Sunset Glow (Sold)

  • Sold.

Artist: Itô Shinsui 伊東深水
Title: Mount Fuji in the Sunset Glow
Date: 1943

Close-up view of Mount Fuji, bathed in the red glow of sunset. Shinsui is best known for his bijin-ga, but he also designed landscape prints throughout his career. This work was published during wartime, and focuses on a point (or summit) of national pride, the incomparable Mount Fuji. Oversized, and quite scarce, which is understandable considering the shortages of paper and manpower during the war.
