Hiroshige Ando Woodblock Japanese Framed Print Color Walking in Rain 1830s 21 x 15 (glass framed size). 14 x 9.5 (w/o frame size, print only); Good condition : Frame has a couple scratches, notches and paper behind frame some tearing due to age ; Wood Frame possibly old bamboo is handmade looks sealed (see all photos). The possible original old paper backing is very delicate to the touch and the possible original frame looks to be hand sealed. As we are not professional art dealers, trying to remove the paper/cloth hand drawn print inside would damage the frame and paper. So we are unable to remove the woodblock to take more close-up photos. Was born Ando Tokutaro in 1797 in Edo (now Tokyo), Japan. After becoming an orphan at the age of 13, he began studying with revered artist Utagawa Toyohiro, and at the age of 15, he changed his name to Utagawa Hiroshige.

Fuji, ” circa 1831; “The 55 Stations of the Tokaido, ” circa 1833-34; “Sixty-Nine Stations of the Kiso Road, ” circa 1835; and “One Hundred Views of Edo, circa 1856.
