Detail Description

This is a beautiful copy of a great design, where Hiroshige encloses the landscape in the frame of the maple leaves. A metallic pigment has been used to colour the leaves, gradually oxidizing and thus creating a special effect. This impression is a first edition or extremely close to it.
