Uehara Konen, Mt. Fuji in Snow

Uehara Konen, 1878-1940

Mt. Fuji in Snow

sealed Konen, with publisher's mark of Kobayashi Bunshichi, followed by the number 314, circa pre-1923

3 3/8 by 10 1/8 in., 8.7 by 25.6 cm

Konen's prints published by Kobayashi Bunshichi (1864-1923) frequently have a numbered cartouche following the artist and publisher seals. If these numbers designate the number of Konen works published, he must have been very prolific as there are designs extant which are numbered (at least) to the high 400's. With the death of Kobayashi in the same year as the 1923 earthquake, Konen turned to Watanabe Shozaburo (a former employee of Kobayashi from 1902-06), producing a small number of prints for his new publisher in the following decade.
