Description: After the great success of "Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido," Hiroshige's next large-scale series of landscape paintings was "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji," picking up the theme so successfully treated by his senior Hokusai.


It was the last of Hiroshige's major works, and he passed away before it was (posthumously) published in 1876. Although some of his landscapes depict the same locations as Hokusai's series, the nicely balanced composition and color tones in the vertical format give the work a sense of season, poetry, and a calm impression.

This print captures a sunny spring day in the village of Suwa. Mount Fuji at the end of the long, narrow lake Suwa, and Takasaki Castle surrounded by trees on the left are depicted in a smaller scale, creating a composition with an elongated perspective.

This particular print is a reproduction by Adachi company published in 1998.


There is a slight crease and a few small spots on the margins of this print.
