'The Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji' was one of Hiroshige's final series. While he produced two different series with the same name, the print visible here is from the latter. The first series are half-sized prints oriented landscape, the second series is full-sized with portrait orientation.
This print presents beauties on the beach on the island of Enoshima. Hiroshige's use of profound use of gradation helps to give depth to both the sea and sky. Mount Fuji can be seen through the large torii gate at the entrance of the shrine in a beautiful play on geometrical forms and perspective.
