Title: Rice Planting in Spring Near Mount Fuji
Date: ca 1820

Beautiful scene of women planting rice, two bent over with their hats covering their faces, and two standing up to admire the view of Mount Fuji. A man carries two baskets of rice plants, and stand and admires Mount Fuji in the distance. There are purple irises blooming on the other side of the path, and a pine tree to right helps to anchor the image. Although this seems similar to landscape scenes by Katsukawa Shunsen, the figures and the design seem closer to the work of Hokusai. There is blindprinting on the snow-covered slopes of Fuji as well as on the protective hats of the women. 

Condition: Excellent impression and color; very good condition. Some very minor smudges and wrinkles.
