Two Fish and a Shrimp - Interesting aizuri-e or all blue print of two fish and a shrimp. Nicely composed with the curving body of the fish at top leading the eye down and across the page to the shrimp, where the long antenna winds back around, completing a S-shape. We've never seen this subject in reprint before. A nice example of Hokusai's nature prints.
