"Mt. Fuji from near Tamaho", an original early woodblock print by Takahashi Shotei - ca. 1936
This is a rare original early edition woodblock print of Mt. Fuji, designed by Takahashi Shotei (1871 - 1945), and published by Watanabe Shozaburo (who also worked with such artists as Kawase Hasui, Ito Shinsui, Tsuchiya Koitsu, Charles Bartlett and Elizabeth Keith). This print has the early Watanabe D seal in the lower right margin, indicating that it is an early edition, printed sometime between 1936 (the first printing date for this design) and 1941. There were several colour variants of this Mt. Fuji from Tamaho print - this particular print has a beautiful pink and bluish-purple sky. It is in very good condition with some minor paper repairs at the outer corners, and a small spot on the lower margin. The print size is oban, measuring about 10" x 15" in size.
