Lot Essay

The figure group in Onbu is an interpretation of a detail from Hiroshige’s The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tokaido Road, of a figure giving a piggyback at a crossing on the Seto river. This project was conceived in collaboration between the artist and the Hiroshige Museum in Tokyo.
The published edition of Onbu was printed using traditional Japanese pigments in four colour variants: Blue, Grey, Green and Pink, each in an edition of fifteen with ten artist's proofs, at the Adachi Institute in Tokyo, which was established to preserve traditional Japanese woodcut techniques.
