Antique Japanese triptych print of a landscape with a port scene and mountains by Hiroshige Utagawa. Three individual woodblock prints compose this tranquil port scene at the base of a mountain range. Original condition. Each measures 16.5" tall by 9.75" wide, overall 16.5" by 29.5" wide. They are in very good condition with few signs of age. The first print bears seals in the upper and lower left corners. The second print bears seals in the upper and lower right corners. This is an Edo period, 1603-1868, print from the 19th century. Hiroshige Utagawa, 1797 - 1858, is considered to be the last great master of the ukiyo-e tradition before the restoration of 1868. He trained under Toyohiro of the Utagawa school. He is best known for "The Sixty-Nine Stations of the Kiso Kaido" and "The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido" which were influenced by the publication of Hokusai's "The Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji."
