Ekoda Moon - 江古田の月
by Shotei, Takahashi (1871-1945) - 高橋松亭
|Artist:||Shotei, Takahashi (1871-1945) - 高橋松亭|
|Title:||Ekoda Moon - 江古田の月|
|Date:||1909-1923 (this artwork: First/Early edition)|
|Publisher:||Watanabe - 渡辺|
|Medium:||Woodblock - 木版画|
|Format:||Mitsugiri - 三つ切り, 37.6 x 16.2 plus margins|
|Notes:||The spelling of the town's name seems to be in dispute. Shote.com list this print as "Full moon at Egota" while Shimizu-san's Shotei catalog list this print as "Moon From Ekota". In fact the kanji can be pronounced in four different ways: Ekota, Ekoda, Egota, and Egoda. I usually solve this type of problem by doing an Internet search for each word and determining which word returns the most search results. In this case "Ekoda" produced far more results than the other three names. M-82 on Shotei.com.
