Impression Very Fine. Skillfully executed "bokashi" shading; nicely visible "woodgrain" in sky and mountain; light "gauffrage" to snow in trees; astonishingly life-like "reflection" seen in lake.
Condition Very Good+++. Deep, strong colors. (Thin tape residues verso margins, some thinning; few scattered marks; light wear.)
Reference/Illus Andacht, pg.109.
Comments Strikingly beautiful wintertime image of a reflected Mt Fuji seen at Tagonoura. (Believed to be a very early, pre-War impression.)
