In nineteenth-century Japan the fan not only provided relief from the oppressive heat, it became a fashionable representation of summer. In theaters, fans were associated with dramatic moments; on the streets people carried fans bearing the marks of favorite actors. The fan also had a special place in prints—artists depicted them in many scenes, and some prints were also designed to be cut and fit onto a standard bamboo fan framework. This print measures 9.5" high by 13.5" long, including the margins. It is in excellent condition, no tears, holes or stains. It bears Hiroshige's Kanji cipher, a title box in Kanji script, and several date seals, along with the publisher seal. Original woodblock 'Fan' print, c1920 P5018
