"Nissaka: Mt. Mugen from Sayo-no-Nakayama (Station 26)" from the series "Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido" by Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858). The image depicts a group of travelers on a mountain path looking at the Yonaki-ishi stone that marks the place where a pregnant woman was killed by a highwayman. The panorama of the Muken mountains is in the background. The series was originally published by Tsutaya in 1855 and was re-printed from the original blocks in 1891. The date of "Meiji 24" (1891) appears in the left margin. Standard vertical oban print measuring about 14 1/4"V x 9 7/8"H (image: 13 1/2"V x 8 3/4"H). Very good overall condition with full margins. Some faint bleeding of the red pigment is evident, particularly in the title and signature cartouches. Repaired binding holes along the right margin. Colors somewhat faded. Small trace of paper residue at two back corners. This image is illustrated on pg. 82 of "Catalogue of the Van Gogh Museum's Collection of Japanese Prints," Amsterdam, 1991.
