Early edition Japanese shin hanga woodblock print titled "Boats at Shinagawa, Night" (aka “Shinagawa Coast”) from the series “Tokyo Views” (Tokyo Fukei) by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870-1949) dated in the right margin "5th month of Showa 10" (1935). The black ink signature and red seal of the artist are at the lower right. The seals of the publisher Doi Sadaichi (used 1933-1945), carver Ikeda, and printer Matsushita are in the lower left margin. Indicative of an early edition, the blue series title cartouche is at the right margin. The Doi watermark is at the upper left corner. Paper measures 15 1/4" x 10 1/4" (image: 14 3/16” x 9 1/2"). The image is lightly sun struck and slightly faded but is otherwise in very good overall condition. There is a small amount of paste residue to the top back margin corner. This print is color illustrated on page 70 (plate 3.23) of “The Catalogue Raisonne of Tsuchiya Koitsu.”
