Arts and Designs of Japan
January Selection January 2019

Artist Hiroshige
Title Miyako dori (Oyster Catcher) swimming by reeds under falling cherry blossom petals
Date 6/1861
Publisher Yamashiroya Jinbei
Format Tanzaku (4 1/2" X 13 1/4")
Comment Shown in Tamba, #418, and the MFA, dated 1846 - 7, but without censor's seal. This example has a censor's seal for 1861 which is clearly after Hiroshige's death. Also, a publisher's seal which other known examples don't have. A possible explanation would be that Yamashiro purchased the blocks at this time.
Price $650.
