Lower Meguro by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Lower Meguro
Series; The Thirty-six Views of Fuji, Takamizawa Release

Takamizawa's "36 Views of Fuji" release - In the mid 20th century, with the increase in Western visitors to Japan and the interest in the Edo era woodblock print tradition, some of the best publishing houses began to release high quality ukiyo-e of the most famous scenery and portrait prints from the Edo era. It was during this time that the Takamizawa Publisher, the finest reprint publisher of the era, began work on a release of Hokusai's 36 Views of Fuji.

Drawing on the traditions and methods of the Edo era, the prints were produced with the original Edo era colors and printed on beautiful handmade paper. The prints were produced with the utmost care and great attention to detail, masterfully reproducing color, linework and even woodgrain detail. Takamizawa's 36 Fuji prints were a fantastic achievement and were released to great acclaim. Some of the most popular subjects, such as Red Fuji and the Great Wave, quickly became a scarce commodity.  

Takamizawa's 36 Fuji prints are considered to be the finest reprints of Hokusai's series ever done. Today, these prints are valuable and highly sought after by collectors.

Lower Meguro - Beautiful Hokusai image of a quaint, thatch-roofed farming village, the hills surrounding terraced for cultivation. In a dip between hills, Fuji can be seen in the distance. In the foreground, two falconers stop to question a local farmer. Rich color and excellent detail.
