    Curator's Note:


    This work is a beautiful landscape depicting the view of Mt. Fuji from Okitsu beach in the city of Katsuura. Hiroshi Yoshida, one of the foremost woodblock print artists of the 20th century, was well known for his landscape scenes which captured the beauty of many cultures and geographies around the world. Mt. Fuji, being Japan's most prominent geographical icon, was the subject of multiple prints and paintings by Yoshida-san. In this print, the view of the boats resting on the shore, along with the reflection of Mt. Fuji in the water, adds a beautiful perspective to the design.
