Description: This is one of the "Selected Masterpieces of Japanese Ink Brush Painting" (日本水墨画名作撰) published by Tanseisha probably in the 1970s or 1980s. The original ink brush paintings, which express the depth of nature in a world of limited ink colors, were turned into woodblock prints with 85 to 90 impressions by master printers using antique Nara ink (black, blue, and brown).

This print is considered to depict the view toward Awaji Island. It seems to be a quiet evening, and on the edge of a shore stands a small fisher house. It is under a tree and next to a small rocky hill, with an empty boat floating in front. The mountain in the background along with the river that gets lost on the horizon, gives a note of calm to the whole atmosphere ...

Note: it may be hard to tell from the web page, but this print is large - almost double the O-ban size. Please check the dimension indicated at the top.


There are slight foxing spots in the upper area.
