DescriptionTitle:"At Kanaya Station" (Plate #25) from "53 Stations on the Tokaido" Signed by Hokusai I-itsu (hitsu) 1760-1849 Publisher's Seal: Takenouchi. Of the numerous series of landscape scenes designed by Hiroshige, none are better known, or have brought him wider fame, than his celebrated early set of view (all oblon) on the two captials-- Yedo (now Tokyo) and Kyoto (old capital). A distance of 323 miles. This is Plate #25. At Kanaya. Beyond the wide sandy flats of the river, across which a "Daimyos" cortege is being carried, rises a jumble of fooothills, in a crevice of which nestles a village. In the background, a high range of curioulsy hump-shaped mountains, printed in graded black from color blocks only.
