Irises and Grasshopper by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Irises and Grasshopper

Publisher - Adachi from a rare series of Edo masterwork designs. Adachi publisher seal in margin or on reverse.

Adachi was one of the most respected publishers of the 20th century. Their woodblocks were printed to the highest standards with excellent color and fine detail. Founded in 1925, Adachi also chose interesting and varied subjects for their prints and was the only publisher of many famous old ukiyo-e images.

Comments - Lovely Hokusai flower subject depicting the classic Japanese iris and grasshopper. The purple and white blossoms stand out against the rich green narrow foliage, the grasshopper nearly hidden among the leaves. A beautiful subject with soft shading in the background.

Artist - Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
Image Size - 10 3/8" x 15" + margins as shown
Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Faint rubbing spot at left side. Please see photos for details. Nice overall.
