Watanabe Reference No Hotei # 4 Size 7 -1/8 x 18 -3/4 " Nagaban format Condition Very fine. The vertical line at the right edge of the design is a natural crease in the Hosho paper. Notes: Hasui's notes state: "This plateau of mostly oak trees is located at the top of the road leading from the town of Furumachi to Arayu Spa. Is was mid-autumn; the oak leaves were turning red and the field was completely yellow. I tried to express the grandiose beauty of nature in autumn by contrasting the distinct cobalt-blue mountains with the floating clouds in an infinite sky."
