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 depicts Koganehara (Kogane Plain), once known as a ranch and a hunting ground for the generals' deer hunting during the Edo period. It is early summer, when azaleas are in bloom, and horses graze peacefully in the foreground with Mt. Fuji in the distance.

The image can be contrasted with a famous design from his "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo" which depicts a horse's buttocks, but here, by contrast, the horse is shown from the front.

This particular print is a reproduction from the Adachi company, published in 1998.


There are some slight foxing spots mainly on the left and top margins of this print. Also, the bottom right corner is a little creased.
