Dear Cathy Shelton,

Just tripped over your Hiroshige print: "Enjoying the evening cool at Shijo in Kyoto" (Kyoto Shijo yusuzumi)
Designer: Utagawa Hiroshige II
Publisher: Uoya Eikichi
Date: 1859
Series: A 100 Views of Famous places in Various Provinces
You'll find an image in the Catalogue of the Van Gogh Museum's Collection of Japanese Prints on page 105.
Although Hiroshige II has always been placed into the shadow of his master, he made some very good designs to. I'm not specialized in Hiroshige II, but I know some collectors are gladly willing to pay serious prices for one of his better prints. And I think yours is probably one of them. But ... only if it's an early edition with the right (evening) colours!!!

Your sincerly, Theo de Kreijger
