obaiban tate-e 26 3/8 by 18 3/4 in., 67 by 47.5 cm

This composition is Binnie's most recent addition to his landscape series, Travels with the Master, where he revisits and reinterprets locales depicted by his favorite shin hanga landscape artist, Hiroshi Yoshida (1876-1950). While Yoshida's Niagara Falls was a horizontal composition in the dai oban size (approx. 12 by 18 in.), Binnie presents a very large vertical composition of a completely different vantage (from the American side looking towards Canada), depicting the American Falls in the middle ground and the Horseshoe Falls behind.

This impression sold- another impression is available.
