Kobayashi Kiyochika (1847-1915)
Snow at Suidobashi, from the series 100 Views of Musashi Province
Japanese Color Woodblock Print
35.6 x 23.5 cm
One of the best designs in this very appealing series that may be considered a bridge between Hiroshige and Hasui, between old Edo and modern Tokyo. View from beneath a bridge of a boatman on a log raft poling his craft along the snow-covered banks. A fire wafts smoke across his log raft, and his legs are bare beneath his straw coat. With extensive mica in the water and sky.
