A print of West Lake, Hangzhou 西湖勝景

As a wish for a Happy New Year 2013 I present to my followers a hitherto unpublished print of the West Lake in Hangzhou. I admit to not knowing much regarding the print, I do not even dare to speculate on a date (wild guess is Qianlong-Jiaqing period). Perhaps the buildings and signposts in the image can cast an indication.

What is interesting is the amount of details in this print, which measures around 35×45 cm (the print and its data are in London and I am in Argentina).

I hope my readers can give me more input on this print.

HAPPY NEW YEAR.
