Mt. Fuji from Mizukubo
a nice impression with pink on Fuji's peak, signed Hiroaki with artist's double gourd-shaped seal Hiroaki, the print title on the right margin, Mizukubo, with publisher's 'D' seal Hanken shoyu (copyright reserved) Watanabe Shozaburo, ca. 1936
oban yoko-e 10 1/4 by 15 5/8 in., 26.1 by 39.8 cm
It is interesting to note that the majority of extant impressions of this print (seventeen are accessible at www.ukiyo-e.org) either bear a later Watanabe seal, or no publisher seal at all.
Hisao Shimizu, Syotei (Hiroaki) Takahashi: His Life and Work, Folk Museum of Ota City, 2005, p. 59, no. 290 (appears to be the same seal)
