Label Text:
This print dates to the 1820s and is from an untitled series of landscapes, all of which feature a red cloud band in the background. This print is signed at lower-right "Eizan hitsu" ('drawn by Eizan') and bears the circular 'kiwame' censor's seal, beneath which can be found the identifying seal of the publisher Moriya Jihei (ca. 1797–1886) of the firm Kinshindō. Eizan's signature is consistent with other works from the 1820s, especially from 1824–1829.
