Uehara Konen, 1878-1940
Boat in Rain
signed in red rectangular seal, Konen, published by Kobayashi Bunshichi, circa pre-1923
3 3/8 by 9 7/8 in., 8.7 by 25.2 cm
The Muller copy of this print has the publisher's paulownia leaf seal and numbererd cartouche '267.' Many prints of this small format type produced in the 1910s by Kobayashi bear these number cartouches which are thought to be the publisher's system of numbering the designs which were issued.
