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 and paintings, although it is likely he worked closely with the carver and printer who executed the finished prints.  This small print with an impressionistic take on Gojō-bashi over the Horikawa River in Nagoya, as with his other two prints in this collection, may have appeared in one of the many journals of the period or as illustrations for a novel.
