About This Print

A stark view in early evening of Mount Fuji with bare trees in the foreground.  While this collection's print appears to be hand signed by the artist, "S. Ohshiro", and is part of a numbered edition (20/100), the LACMA version of the print, see below, carries a stamped signature "S. Ōshiro," and is not editioned.  The LACMA print uses a brighter palette that better reflects the print's title "Evening Glow" than this collection's print.
