About This Print

A chromolithograph reproduction of an ink painting of Fuji by Seihō that appeared as a supplement to the  1934 New Year issue of the magazine Shufu no tomo (The Housewife's Friend).  I have not been able to determine if the original painting is extant and, if so, where it resides.

The Honolulu Museum of Art has a reproduction of this ink painting in their collection, see below, which they identify as being published by Shimbi Shoin and date to c. 1920. It is likely that their information is incorrect, including the publishing attribution to Shimbi Shoin, as the two reproductions seem identical (allowing for differences in photography), including the image dimensions of the two. Note that the right margin providing the publishing details of the print is absent on the Honolulu copy. (The information in the right margin is shown in the Print Details table below.)
