Sanjo Bridge, Kyoto, 1920 (fine 1970’s woodblock reprint)
Hashigushi Goyo (1880 - 1921)

Sanjo Bridge, Kyoto- Our view is across the Kano river with the great Sanjo bridge in the middle. Light snow is falling and covers the hilly, mountainous range that borders Kyoto. Goyo’s simple color palette is the perfect design choice for this image. In many ways, this scene, one of the most famous in Japan, still looks much the same today. The soft colors, heavy paper and careful attention to detail reflect the quality of this print.

This Goyo reprint- In the 1970’s a small group of woodblock reprints were made of Goyo’s incredible images. His prints are so rare and sought after, these prints offered an opportunity to have a Goyo print without the expense of an original. Original Goyo images sell in the $7,500 - $20,000 range. This print is a unique opportunity and a great value. These prints of Goyo’s works are the only woodblock reprints ever produced of his prints and are very hard to come by.

This print comes with both original folders. It is in the original heavy rag presentation inner folder which fits inside a titled outer folder. See photo with inner folder.

Signed- Goyo-ga with red artist’s seal
Sealed- In blue in margin by publisher, carver and printer
Image size- 11” x 17 3/4” (same as original- large print)
Condition- Perfect, no toning, tears, not mounted, full margins
