Cloth Fulling Surimono by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Cloth Fulling Surimono

Surimono - Surimono are an exclusive subcategory of Japanese woodblock prints. Poetry clubs commissioned these designs for distribution to a small audience of members, most often as New Year's greetings. These privately published images included a wonderful range of subjects and lavish printing techniques such as embossing, burnishing, and metallic pigments. Since surimono were not sold commercially, the print runs were very small and original Edo era surimono are incredibly rare in the market today. These fine quality suriomono reprints offer a great way to collect these classic designs at an affordable price.

Comments - Attractive surimono image of a young woman daydreaming as she sits at a fulling block for beating cloth, her tools temporarily set aside. A small boy holds an insect cage, and a full moon is visible above the clouds. Unusual looking gourds hanging from a vine frame the scene at right. A lovely design.

Artist - Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
Image Size - 8 3/8" x 6 5/8"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Slight toning. Please see photos for details.
