Original Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Print
Preparing Food, 1833
Series; Illustrated Tang Poems in Five-Syllable Lines, 1833
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

Illustrated Tang Poems in Five-Syllable Lines - Handsome design from Hokusai's five-volumes series "Illustrated Tang Poems in Five-Syllable Lines" (Ehon Toshisen gogonritsu hairitsu). Published in 1833, these prints illustrate famous Chinese poems from the Tang Dynasty [618-907]. Hokusai's black and white woodblocks are beautifully detailed, creating lyrical and evocative settings. Images include elegant palaces, travelers making their way through the countryside, warriors in battle or relaxing, and even a few kacho-e or birds and flowers designs. Hokusai illustrated more than 250 books in his lifetime, and these interesting scenes display his masterful compositions and skillful draftsmanship. A rarely seen series and a nice opportunity to collect an original Hokusai woodblock.
