Vivid, pristine colours. Brush signed and sealed by the artist. Yoshida used 11 blocks and 51 impressions to create this scene.
This print was purchased from a consignment of over 75 woodblock prints (by Koitsu and Yoshida), all with datings from the 1930's to no later than the early 1950's. All but a couple of these prints seem to have never been displayed and have vivid pristine colours on creaseless paper. They were probably purchased and then simply stored for the last 60+ years.
