Sold

Print is no 52 in the series. It shows pedestrians crossing the Ohashi Bridge (the Great Bridge) at Atake during a rain storm.The bridge spans the Sumida River. The print is drawn so that you cannot see the people’s faces. The scene sparks the imagination of the viewer.
Format is Oban tate-e. Originally made in 1857, this is a later edition from re-carved blocks probably done in the middle of the 20th century. This re-carved edition was probably published by Takamizawa Tadao. Some tape residue in all four margins on verson from previous framing. Otherwise, no problems or flaws of note.
