Lake Biwa

by Shoda Koho

Abstract

One of two prints from the Hasegawa series, and in fact represent one of the aspects unique to the woodblock print process. Using exactly the same blocks, but inking them with different sets of colors, the printers were able to produce visions of the same scene at different times of day. Both prints feature a boat setting off with passenger and boatman (or woman, given the hair length) in the foreground, the Ukimido at Katata, on Lake Biwa, in the background, and a pine branch silhouetted above. This one shows a dawn of browns and grays, no stars, and no touches of red—the lanterns have gone out as the sun prepares to rise.
