四谷大木戸. [Yotsuya Okido].
Evocative Woodblock Print of an Early Evening Scene at a Busy Town Street.

[Japan]. No date. Late Meiji? Stock ID #206489

Colour woodblock print, 37 x 16.5cm, paper backing adhered to upper edge of verso. "Made in Japan" small stamp on reverse of image.

The woodblock print, created by Takahashi Shotei (1871-1945), captures a tranquil early evening street scene. The central focus rests on a woman gracefully carrying a lantern, her gaze directed towards a betting shop. Above, a delicate crescent moon graces the sky, casting a subtle glow. In the backdrop, hurried travelers hasten towards their lodgings, their purpose evident in their brisk pace. The print masterfully intertwines elements of human activity and celestial beauty, painting a beautiful portrait of the moment.
