About This Print

One of Miyashita's etchings, done early on in his career, depicting the Tokyo waterfront region where he was born.  His later prints, which he is best known for, used combined processes including metal plates, photoengraving and woodblock. 

The Artelino website archive shows that this print was distributed by the Gendai Meika Sosaku Hanga Haifu Kai (an organization I am not familiar with) as part of a portfolio issued in 1959 titled Gendai Meika Sosaku Hanga Shū (Creative Prints by Famous Contemporary Artists) which included woodblock prints and etchings by ten different artists, including Maeda Masao (1904-1974)Maekawa Senpan (1888-1960), Shigeru Izumi (1922-1995), Suihō Tagawa (fl.ca. 1950s), Tetsuro Komai (1920-1976), Yoshitaka Nakao (1911-1994), Hagiwara Hideo (1913-2007) and Azechi Umetarō (1902-1999).
