Mt Fuji from the Koshu Road - 甲州路の富士
by Tokuriki, Tomikichiro
|Title:||Mt Fuji from the Koshu Road - 甲州路の富士|
|Series:||Thirty-Six Views of Mt Fuji - 富士三十六景|
|Medium:||Watercolour - 水彩画|
|Format:||Oban - 大判, 38.6 x 26.6cm (image size)|
|Notes:||This is a rare and obviously one-of-a-kind watercolour used as the 'shita-e' (preparatory drawing) for the woodblock print series "Thirty-Six Views of Mt Fuji". The series title "富士三十六景" can be seen to the right of the artist's signature. It would appear that this particular scene was not selected for inclusion in the final 36 scenes. In early 2010 I was fortunate to be able to acquire 32 Tokuriki watercolours. Print title at upper right margin. Series title, artist signature and seal at lower right.
The series was first published between 1939 and 1940. See the full series from the first edition here.
