This woodblock entitled "Scattered Pines, Tone River" by Hiroshige is an absolute fabulous example of the rare woodblock print. Having never been displayed and stored flat its entire life; the original color is visually striking with its deep reds, blues, yellow and green color that this composition is mostly created from. This woodblock is executed on hand laid paper and adhered down to a thin paper via tacked in the top right and left corner. The lower left corner is a little soft, not as crisp as the others and I cant tell if it is a crease or natural imperfection in the paper but a slight line runs just over the two flying cranes (runs slightly diagonal) The images provided accurately represent the quality, condition and aesthetic beauty of this incredibly rare Hiroshige woodblock print.

This print shows a fisherman casting his net into the Tone River which is now known as the Edogawa River. Known for its carp; this river was a favorite spot which can be seen with the other fisherman in the middle ground that is winding up to cast his net. The webbing of the cast net shows the masterful carving that Hiroshige possessed and is incredible to view in the flesh. In the background just past the tall grass you can see multiple tall pine trees which helped give this print its name.
