Original Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Print
Castle in Flames
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction
Old Japanese Gallery Inventory - This print came from a large group purchased from the inventory of an old Tokyo gallery. The gallery, popular with foreign clients in the 1950s, went out of business when the owner died almost 50 years ago. Look for the old gallery mounts, with artist and subject identification in pencil in English, on some prints. Where applicable we’ve left the mounts intact (as seen in our photos). Great group offered for the first time in 50 years!
