Oiso from the Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido. The set published by Hoeido and Senkakudo c 1833-4. Shows travellers entering the coastal village under rain and a yellow sky. Hiroshige’s title for this design: ‘The Rain of Tora’ is a reference to the tearful Kabuki play concerning a prostitute Tora and her child.

Very good impression and colour. Minimal edge soil and uneven trimming of margins. Signed Hiroshige ga.
