44. Lake Suwa in Shinano Province

 

In the first edition, it was a woodblock printing of a single indigo color. But every time running into several editions, green and light scarlet was added. Hereby the picture became an emotional landscape of the evening.

 

There is a rocky place where the shrine and two Japanese pine stands in front of the image, and the outlines of Lake Suwa are drawn in parallel with it. It is a ukiyo-e artwork skillfully used the perspective technique.

 

In front of Mt. Fuji which is small but clearly visible, Takamatsu Castle pushes out into the lake.
