Inventory #:
10070
Title:
Mt. Fuji (Sunset)
Artist:
Yoshimoto Masao
Description:
Masao only published a couple of rarely seen prints with Kyoto Hanga-In. This is such a nice print that I regret that they didn't go further with the collaboration.

The treatment of overlaying colors in the water to suggest reflections and ripples is especially effective here. Also, some embossing in the sunset/cloudscape adds a nice subtle touch.
