Hiroshige, Utagawa – Kanbara – S0716


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.
