|Notes:||From a book of prints titled "Selection of 12 Seasonal Landscape Scenes". This is probably taken from the woodblock print series "Views of Japan" (see examples in my gallery and my JAODB database). Originally sketched by Kiyochika with trial prints produced in 1914/1915, the first official woodblock edition was not published until 1929.
See my article here regarding this exceptionally beautiful and important series by Kiyochika.
