Yoshida: Fujiyama; First Light of the Sun
Artist: Yoshida Hiroshi
Title: Fujiyama; First Light of the Sun
Oversized work showing the magical moment at dawn where the first light of the sun hits the summit of Mount Fuji, which rises like a mirage of perfect symmetry above a small village nestled in trees. The sky glows with subtle shades of orange, pink and purple; colors which are here completely unfaded. A rare design from the series “Ten Views of Fuji.” At more than 70 cm wide, this was a work of unprecedented size, and Yoshida purchased a huge mountain cherry tree to be able to produce this and several other oversized prints.
Condition: Excellent impression, color and condition. A few minor wrinkles near margin.
Dimensions: 58.5 x 75 cm (paper size)
Literature: Abe catalog number 48.
Seal: Jizuri (“self-printed”) in ink
Signature: Yoshida in ink and Hiroshi Yoshida in pencil
