HIROSHIGE  (1797-1858)

Cranes above Waves
Signed:  Hiroshige fude
Dated: 1858
In 1858,  Hiroshige designed a kakemono (hanging scroll print) of cranes flying above a crashing wave.  This design was later very slightly adapted to be a single sheet print with different coloring in the sky. This single sheet was frequently used as a good-luck decoration; many people who assembled albums of their prints attached them to the inside cover.

Quite good impression and colors. Stain in sky.
