Good condition, please read the description
Two original diptych woodblock prints in pastel shades by Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858) – 'Tempel Gate' and 'Blossoms' from "Souvenirs of Edo" – Japan – around 1853
These diptych woodblock prints originally come from Hiroshige's "Souvenirs of Edo". This is a series of picture books (ten volumes), published in 1850-1867. The attractive designs describe beautiful and well-known places in and around the city of Edo (now Tokyo). The original woodblock prints are from volume 6.
Photos 3 and 8 are composite photos. This was done in order to give a good impression of the actual diptychs. So the four individual sheets are still entirely intact!
Measurements per sheet: 18.2 x 12.2 cm
Measurements of the actual diptych: 16 x 22 cm
The diptych woodblock prints are in good condition. Good impression and the colours still are bright. Please see the photos for details.
The woodblock prints will be shipped by registered post in a sturdy cardboard packaging.
