'Mount Fuji as seen from Suzukawa'
This woodblock print depicts Mount Fuji in all her glory where Fuji is the central theme. This print is a classic example of Hiroshi Yoshida's mastery of the shin hanga movement and his ability to capture the essence of beauty. This print measures 15.75" long by 10.5" high, including the margins. Without margins, the color print is 14.75" long by 9.5" high, so 1/2" margins approximately. The original full photo of the print had artist tape at the top margin. I removed the tape and the full frontal photo shows the print, including its edges, which are all intact. The second full image shows the original photo with the artist tape intact. The colors remain quite supple with some toning from a previous mat. This print was first published in 1935, dated Showa 10. This edition is sealed with Yoshida's Japanese cipher, along with the title of the print in Kanji script in the left margin, and as per Yoshida's standard the title and his name are noted in English in the lower margin in pencil. There is an old authentication certificate on the backside, citing its date as 1935, along with the title and Hiroshi Yoshida as the artist for the print, which I have left intact as it can be seen in the backside image. This edition dates to the early 1940s. P20826 $995.00
