How were these prints done? These beautiful woodblock reprints were done exactly as the originals. An artist carved a wood block, one for each color, and hand printed each print one color at a time. These old reprints are sought after for their meticulous attention to detail and color, rivaling the originals. Unlike the brighter, souvenir prints seen on the market these fine reprints show the attention to detail and careful color choices intended to exactly replicate the old originals.

Series; Pictures of Fish Comments- A terrific Hiroshige's fish subject from his "Pictures of Fish" series. The huge, prize Japanese Koi depicted against the rich, beautiful blue water.
