"Totsuka: View of Mt. Fuji from the Mountain Road (Station 6)" from the series "Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido" by Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858) published by Tsutaya Kichizo in 7/1855. The print depicts farmers planting rice in the flooded rice paddies during the spring. This is not a later edition or reproduction. It is a guaranteed original woodblock print by Hiroshige. Standard vertical oban print measuring about 14 3/8"V x 9 7/8"H x (image: 13 1/2"V x 8 7/8"H). Signed and sealed at the lower left corner of the image. The censor's seal, date seal, and publisher's seals are located at the lower left. The title and subtitle cartouches are at the upper right. The green rice paddies have faded to blue and a fade line is evident around the bottom and left sides of the image. The print is otherwise in very good overall condition. Margins are full. The baren marks are clearly visible on the reverse side. There is an old repaired worm hole in the bottom margin and two tiny repaired holes in the right margin. Some detail blocks were omitted during printing. The image is described and illustrated on page 74 of "Catalogue of the Van Gogh Museum's Collection of Japanese Prints," 1991.
