Takahashi Hiroaki (Shotei) 高橋松亭 弘明: Mount Fuji 富士山 (SOLD)

  • Sold.

Artist: Takahashi Hiroaki (Shotei) (1871-1945)
Title: Mount Fuji In Mist 富士山
Date: Ca. 1924-27

Serene horizontal view of the perfect slopes of Mount Fuji, snow atop its peak and mist surrounding its shoulders. In the foreground are copses of trees and a small red torii. The printing of the snow on the ridges has a subtle dimensional quality due to  the action of the printer’s baren. Hiroaki excelled at these narrow formats, both horizontal and vertical, which must certainly have presented a design challenge. Clean, serene and beautifully printed.

Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition. 
Dimensions: 17.5 x 39.5 cm 
Publisher: Watanabe Shôzaburô

Literature: Ota City Museum by Shimizu Hiroaki catalog (2005) number 94, page 42.
