Description

This is a vintage reproduction of the Hiroshige’s original, printed in the 1900’s. It is a real woodblock print, not printed by machine. 
Artist: 歌川広重/Hiroshige Utagwa 1797 – 1858

This is an end of the year snowy scenery near by Edo. People were busy for New Year preparations even at night.
Night, rain and snow prints are more valuable and popular among collectors because this type of painting is rare. This piece has 雲母(kira) which is mica or shell powder mixed with ink in the background to express the sparkly snowy night, which can be seen if you look carefully.
