with gofun (powdered oyster shell) on the snow in the foreground; signed in kanji at lower right, Bin-ni, followed by red artist's seal Binnie, series title at upper left, Meishou to no tabi, the print title below in katakana and in kanji, Naiagura bakufu, and in penciled English on the bottom margin, Niagara Falls, 26/100, embossed Binnie at the center of the bottom margin, and pencil signed at far right, Paul Binnie, April 2009
obaiban tate-e 26 3/8 by 18 3/4 in., 67 by 47.5 cm
This composition is one of Binnie's larger additions to his landscape series, Travels with the Master, where he revisits and reinterprets locales depicted by his favorite shin hanga landscape artist, Hiroshi Yoshida (1876-1950). While Yoshida's Niagara Falls was a horizontal composition in the dai oban size (approx. 12 by 18 in.), Binnie presents a very large vertical composition of a completely different vantage (from the American side looking towards Canada), depicting the American Falls in the middle ground and the Horseshoe Falls behind.
