About This Print

As stated in the artist's biography on this site, little is known about the production of woodblock prints from Miyake's drawings, although it is likely he worked closely with the carver and printer who executed the finished prints.  This small print, titled Venice, as with his other two untitled prints in this collection, may have appeared in one of the many journals of the period or as illustrations for a novel.  Miyake made at least two trips to Europe which included some time in southern Italy and in 1911 his European painting tour book, Ōhshū Ryokō e Angya, was published.
