Tsukiyo no Miyajima (Moonlit night at Miyajima) - A

Harumitsu Utagawa

2231

Remarkable woodblock print "Tsukiyo no Miyajima" (Moonlit night at Miyajima) is by Harumitsu Utagawa. From an old estate in Japan. Absolutely beautiful colors and contrast. 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 monotone colors separately. Harumitsu Utagawa is one of the descendants of Toyokuni Utagawa.
