Tsukiyo no Miyajima (Moonlit night at Miyajima) - B

Harumitsu Utagawa

2232

Remarkable woodblock print "Tsukiyo no Miyajima" (Moonlit night at Miyajima) is by Harumitsu Utagawa. From an old estate in Japan. Serene night scene at Miyajima. Title on the upper right margin. Artist name and "Utagawa" red seal on the lower right corner of the image. Most likely printed between Taisho era to the early Showa era. (around 1930)  This print is extremely hard to find. I post same print with fine colors separately. Harumitsu Utagawa is one of the descendants of Toyokuni Utagawa. When you display both, they would complement each other nicely.
