Hiroshige, Utagawa – Kanbara – S0716

$181.00

Deep snow covers the slope of Kanbara in the evening. Fresh flakes falling on the houses, trees, and mountains create a quiet that is broken only by the implied crunch of travelers’ footsteps in the snow. This scene is almost entirely imaginary; it rarely snows in the Kanbara area, in present-day Shizuoka Prefecture. This was a favorite print of architect Frank Lloyd Wright. He gave it to his customers and it is on the wall at his masterwork “Falling Water” signed by Wright.

This is a ukiyo-e reproduction from recarved blocks and is smaller than the original. Originally created in 1833. Date for this edition is unknown. Not examined outside of frame.

Please note, when orders include a framed print, your payment does not include shipping cost for framed print(s). We will send you a separate invoice for shipping once that has been calculated. If you have any questions about shipping, contact us using the links at the bottom of the page.
