[WRIGHT, FRANK LLOYD.]
HIROSHIGE, UTAGAWA. 1797-1858. Snow on Mt. Haruna in Kozuke Province.
Woodcut, from the series Famous Views of the Sixty-Odd Provinces (Rokujuyoshu meisho zue, Koshimura Heisuke (Koshihei), 1853-56), 360 x 248 mm (oban tateye), signed "Hiroshige gwa," good impression and color, faint soil to margin.

The present view of Mt. Haruna was given as a gift to Blaine and Hulda Drake by Frank Lloyd Wright. Recent scholarship has given much attention to the impact of Japanese prints on Wright's life and work, as well as to the profound impact Wright had on the market for Japanese prints in the West. (See, for example, Meech, Frank Lloyd Wright and the Art of Japan, 2000, and Nute, Frank Lloyd Wright and Japan: The role of traditional Japanese art and archtecture in the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, 2000.)
