An extremely rare uncut fan print: Spring Moon from a set Three Views of the Moon in the Eastern Capital. Shows two beauties on a restaurant veranda admiring a full moon. The other two designs from this set are illustrated in Hiroshige no uchiwae, Hiroshige Fan Prints, Okuda, Atsuko, Unsodo, 2010, nos 29 and 30, p 28 and 29. Published by Tsujiya Yasubei, c 1849-52. If not unique, then certainly one of the few impressions extant.

 

Very fine impression and colour. Very slight centre fold, otherwise fine condition. Signed Hiroshige ga.
