'Sudden Shower Over Shin-Ohashi Bridge and Atake'

No. 58 from Series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo, 9th month of 1857.

This woodblock print is one of Hiroshige's most famous prints.  This print is in a postcard format, a later edition, which dates to c1930.  In this print one can almost hear the crack of thunder as the rolling black clouds burst into sheets of heavy rain, scattering the huddled shapes on the bridge below. On the blue-gray expanse of the Sumida River, a solitary boatman poles his log raft downstream past the area known as Atake, impervious to the storm. It measures 5.5" x 3.75".  Excellent condition, never framed.    P7914
