Object Description
Ninteenth century Japanese color woodblock print depicting a snowy mountain peak with one lone pine tree on top, surrounded by water. In middle distance a headland juts out into the sea, joined to the mainland by a low narrow neck; hilly coast-line in background, all white with snow. A masterpiece.... The hill in foreground should be tinted grey at base, white to summit; sky blackest at top, then deep grey down to the horizon; sea deep blue at edges of shore, lighter in centre.
