Ferry Landing at Yagiri - Past Okuyama, Gihachiro

The ferry originated as a way to connect two farm communities on either side of the river. It has an idyllic atmosphere thanks to the novel from Sachio Itō titled Nogiku no Haka (“The Wild Daisy” from 1906).  The novel was made into movies in 1955, 1966 and in 1981. There is also a song about the crossing written by Miyuki Ishimoto which hit number one in the Japan record charts in 1983. The song is a love story in which the couple tries to elope by way of the Yagiri no Watashi ferry because their parents object to their relationship.

Great Fire at Ryogoku Seen from Asakusa Bridge (S1800)

Kiyochika’s house burned down in the Great Fire at Ryōgoku of 26 January 1881 while he was out sketching. This print captures that event. Crimson flame that dyes the sky red. The fire spreads even further, giving up smoke and scattering sparks. This is a picture depicting a world where the blazing fire that is just burning across Ryogoku Bridge on the shores of the Sumida River is far away, and the terrible rage of the disaster, as well as the sarcasm of the beautiful colors that appear at that time.

Maki’s seal in red ink paste, is below the tear, also at the left. Although Maki himself printed this image, the ink looks as if it was layered on by hand.

He did at most 15 Big Reds.

Format is Dai Oban. Not examined outside of frame. No apparent signs of flaws or damage. Print comes from a private collector who bought the print in 1971 in Japan. This item ships from Florida. Asking price is $800

The hotel was designed as the keystone of an anticipated surrounding foreign settlement, but it failed to measure up to original expectations. Less than four years of being opened, the hotel was demolished by fire, but in that time was a subject of Japanese fascination with its fusion of Japanese building methods and the design influences of Western architecture as characterized by the hotel’s arched gateway and cupola which is the focus of this print.

Hiroshige, Utagawa - Sunshower at Nihonbashi - S0618

In another version of one of Hiroshige’s most effective compositional techniques, the view is from a bridge spanning Edo’s Sumida River to another bridge. This bright, tranquil scene is an interesting contrast to the vigorous human and natural activity in Sudden Shower on the Great Bridge, shown to the right. In this horizontal composition, the bridge at Nihonbashi, the first stage of the route immortalized in his Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido, is seen as rain begins to fall. Against the still light sky are glimpsed Edo’s two other great sights, the Shogun’s castle at upper right, and, in the distance, Mount Fuji. As in many of Hiroshige’s compositions, the viewer is brought intimately onto the scene by the cropping of the image of the bridge’s span.(from The Met)

Hokusai’s “Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji” is justly celebrated as one of the world’s greatest series of images of various conditions and vantage points of a particular place, in this case, the mountain synonymous with Japan. This series created such a sensation that the publisher Eijudo expanded the original conception to eventually include forty-six prints in this series. Another version pulled from the same block includes a line of trees, dimly visible in the rain below the mountain, but this print more effectively implies the awesome moment of the summer storm by eliminating this explicit depiction of rain. This series is noted for its particular blue color, called “Berlin indigo” (bero-ai), a pigment newly introduced by Dutch merchants.Format is Oban yoko-e. This is a later edition print. Never framed.

Kajikazawa in Kai Province (S1070)

The repetition and rhyme of shapes and colors in the foreground and background make this one of the most unified, handsome designs in the series. The triangular shape formed by the fishing lines, the fisherman’s arched back, and the promontory from which he fishes echoes that of Fuji on the horizon. The visual relationship between man in the foreground and nature in the background is enhanced by the deep Berlin blue coloration Hokusai gave to the fisherman’s jacket, the apex of the shoreline in the foreground, and the summit of Fuji. The first impression of this print features the indigo technique; the number of colors was increased in later impressions.

Format is Aiban. Provenance: from a private collection in New York. This is a later edition done in the 1950s. Lightly hinged at top of presentation mat.

Kamei, Tōbei - Daigoji Temple Pagoda - S0743

The tower of the five-story pagoda at Daigoji Temple in Kyoto, rises gracefully above the lush green summer foliage, the red color contrasting beautifully with the rich green shades of the surrounding trees and grass. The spire is framed by tall pines on either side. This print is rich in architectural detail and color. The pagoda of Daigoji Temple was built to store a tiny piece, a drop of swallow’s tears in Japanese, of Buddha’s bone. Pagodas were imported from China about 1,500 years ago, and Daigoji’s pagoda was built about 1,000 years ago. It is ranked among the greatest pagodas in Japan. Japan has had many big earthquakes in the last thousand years, but they have failed to destroy Daigoji pagoda. One reason is that no nails were used to build it. The joints to the main structure are connected like pieces of a three dimensional jigsaw puzzle. With the passage of time, the wood has shrunk and small gaps between the joints have opened up. The gaps and the pliability of wood are able absorb the shock of a strong earthquake.

Format is Oban.

Hiroshige made changes to several of the designs which had been published already, probably due to the loss of key blocks by fire or the request by the publisher.

Kanagawa-juku was the third of the fifty-three stations of the Tōkaidō. It is located in Kanagawa-ku in the present-day city of Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. It is close to Kanagawa Port. Many of its historical artifacts were destroyed by the Great Kantō earthquake and bombings during World War II.

Kogyo, Tsukioka - Genjō - S1220

(also seen written as Kenj?) sometimes attributed to the playwright Kawakami kannushi (dates unknown) in which the sea dragon-god appears carrying a famous lute. This is one of several prints in the series in which the artist uses the actual stage as the background. The famous lute player Moronaga is about to sail for China for further training on the instrument in that country, when he stops for a night at Suma Bay to view the moon. He plays a piece on a lute for the old couple in whose house he is lodging, and is surprised to find them so appreciative of the music that when a shower of rain patters down on the roof they hasten to spread rush mats there to deaden the sound. He therefore asks them to play a piece, and when they play on the lute and Japanese hard their performance is so skillful that he abandons altogether his plan of going to study in China. At this, the old couple reveal that they are in fact the Emperor Murakami and his consort, the Lady Nashitsubo, and that the Emperor had played the melody on the famous lute called Genj? in the hope that after hearing it Moronaga would give up his journey abroad. They then vanish, but the Emperor reappears shortly afterwards and summons a dragon-god from the sea. He retrieves from him another famous lute, Shishi-maru, which had been seized by the draon-god when it was on its way to Japan with Genj?, and this he presents to Moronaga.Format is Oban yoko-e.

Mamoru, Hiyoshi - Cormorant Fishing on the Nagara River in Gifu Prefecture Scene 2 - S0333

One of two prints designed by the artist depicting cormorant fishing on the Nagara River in Gifu Precture. An ancient art practiced along the Nagara River in Gifu for more than 1,300 years, cormorant fishing has a long history in Japan and is mentioned in many ancient chronicles. The samurai warlord, Oda Nobunaga took the ukai fisherman under his patronage and created the official position and title of usho (Cormorant Fishing Master). The shogun, Tokugawa Ieyasu enjoyed watching ukai when he visited Gifu City and also gave his patronage and protection to the art. He was so fond of the sweet fish that he had it delivered to Edo Castle in modern day Tokyo. The haiku poet, Matsuo Basho famously wrote a haiku about ukai when he visited Gifu to watch the cormorant fishing: “Exciting to see / but soon after, comes sadness / the cormorant boats”.

Format is Oban yoko-e. Print has toning but color is still vibrant.

Moon Crossing Bridge- Inagaki, Toshijiro

This is a modern print showing people walking on the Togetsukyo bridge over the Katsura River as seen through the branches of large stylized trees. The 155-meter bridge  is a well-known place of scenic beauty in the western hills of Kyoto. The artistic form of the bridge embodies the aesthetic sense that is at the heart of the Japan artistic tradition.  The first bridge was undertaken in 836 during the Heian Period, but the current construction was built in 1934. The bridge is often used in historical films.  Although the bridge appears to have been built of wood, it actually has columns and beams made of reinforced concrete. Only the parapets are constructed from cypress. Cormorant fishing is done in the vicinity of the bridge during summer nights.  Nearby is Mt Arashi (Arashiyama), a 375 meter mountain located south of the bridge.

 

The artist uses a blue palate for the large trees in the print with human figures in shades of red. Minor ripple on left margin.

This wonderful spring cherry blossom scene at the Kintaibashi is one of Hasui’s best. The beatuiful blossoms in full bloom dominate the foreground in a design reminscent of Hiroshige. A single boatman passes under the traditional old bridge. The five arched Kintaikyo Bridge, in Yamaguchi Prefecture, was built in the late 17th century by Lord Hiroyoshi Kikkawa after the Nishiki River flooded. Considered one of Japan’s most beautiful bridges, its five linked arches form a graceful span across the Nishiki River. Because of its unique shape, it is also known as the Abacus Bridge. Originally constructed in 1673, it was washed away by a flood in 1950 and reconstructed in 1953, precisely replicating the original. An engineering marvel, only clamps and wires (no nails) were used in its construction. Cormorant fishing takes place on the Nishiki River in summer.

Ukiyoe - Dutch Ship (S0652)

Dutch ship under full sail with guns run out. This is a Nagasaki print where the Dutch were permitted to conduct business with Japan.

They had to submit to very strict regulations, however, and were only allowed to live on Deshima, a small artificial island in Nagasaki harbor. Now extremely rare, at the time of their publication the prints were sold as souvenirs to Japanese who visited Nagasaki and perhaps hoped to catch a glimpse of these strange ‘red-haired barbarians’.

Utagawa - Kanagawa, Hiroshige - S0223

This print shows two-storied tea houses on a hillside overlooking Edo Bay with a commanding view of the magnificent seascape.  Women from the tea houses urge the travellers to stop and take a break.  The view is now gone as the land in the bay has been reclaimed to become part of Yokohama.  Hiroshige made changes to several of the designs which had been published already, probably due to the loss of key blocks by fire or the request by the publisher. The first version of “Kanagawa” has different shapes of the foliage, narrower angle of roofs. The treatment of the foreground is also different. Kanagawa-juku was the third of the fifty-three stations of the Tōkaidō. It is located in Kanagawa-ku in the present-day city of Yokohama, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. It is close to Kanagawa Port. Many of its historical artifacts were destroyed by the Great Kantō earthquake and bombings during World War II.

This is a later print in excellent condition and comes in the original mat.  Publisher was Hoeido and Censor was Kiwame.

Yoshimasa in Black Cape (P0005)

Higashiyama (Ashikaga) Yoshimasa in black robe and his attendant watch the birds flying over a cold river on a windy evening. Ashikaga Yoshimasa (January 20, 1436 – January 27, 1490) was the eighth shōgun of the Ashikaga shogunate who reigned from 1449 to 1473 during the Muromachi period of Japan. On August 16, 1443, 10-year-old shōgun Yoshikatsu died of injuries sustained in a fall from a horse. He had been shōgun for only three years. Immediately, the bakufu elevated Yoshinari, the young shōgun’s even younger brother, to be the new shōgun.Several years after becoming shōgun, Yoshinari changed his name to Yoshimasa, by which he is better known. During Yoshimasa’s reign Japan saw the growth of the Higashiyama culture (Higashiyama bunka),10 famous for tea ceremony (Sadō), flower arrangement (Kadō or Ikebana), Noh drama, and Indian ink painting. Higashiyama culture was greatly influenced by Zen Buddhism and saw the rise of Japanese aesthetics like Wabi-sabi and the harmonization of imperial court (Kuge) and samurai (Bushi) culture.

The lake is known for its views of Mt. Fuji.

 

This print was published in the 1950s.  Size is Oban yoko-e.  Some slight creasing and some red ink bleeding on the bottom right margin.  According to Dr Ross Walker, the prints by this publisher were all destroyed during the war and had to be recarved.  Since the publisher did not have the funds for new blocks of cherry wood for each new print scene, the old blocks from previous published scenes were carved down and reused.  As a result of this, there are no surviving blocks from 1950s or 60s.
