Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji (Fuji Sanju-Rokkei) is the title of two series of woodblock prints by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Ando Hiroshige, depicting Mount Fuji in differing seasons and weather conditions from a variety of different places and distances. The 1852 series are in landscape orientation; the 1858 series are in portrait orientation. The print being offered is from the 1858 series, apparently number 10 in the series. Artist: Hiroshige, 1797-1858. Title: Toto meguro yuhigaoka. Twilight Hill at Meguro in the Eastern Capital. Series: Fuji sanjurokkei (Thirty-six Views of Fuji). Medium: Ukiyo-e. Woodblock Print. Date seal: nengetsu 1858 horse, month 4. From the last year of the master's life. This is believed to be an early pull of an early {?} edition, and not a later reprint or a reproduction. Later printings tend to lack the date seal. Size (HxW):14.25" x 9.75" oban tate-e. Signature: Hiroshige. Publisher's mark of Tsuta-ya Kichizo. Condition: Very good impression, almost no soiling, colors very little faded, almost no creasing, a paper strip and thin paper to right edge, partially attached to thin backing paper, margins mostly intact. Superb color choices. Light ochre grounds, with medium blue stream, trees with autumn reddish-brown leaves plus green evergreen needles, blue-gray hills with purple-tinged skyline above and blue-tinged sky at the top. A notably serene image, with a few leaves floating down from the two red maple trees and farmers returning from the fields to their village in Meguro. Meguro-ku is one of the 23 special wards of Tokyo, the former Edo.
