Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Java Sparrow and Magnolia
Fine printing from the respected Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha - These classic designs were produced by the well known Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha amidst a resurgence of interest in ukiyo-e. Like many of these traditional businesses, the woodblock print craft was passed down through generations, and the Oedo Mokuhansha company was formed by descendents of an Edo era publisher. These are nice prints of the highest quality standards and an excellent choice if you are looking for fine old woodblock reprints.
Comments - Wonderful Hokusai birds and flowers print of the colorful Java sparrow on a branch, set against blossoming magnolias with white and purple petals. An attractive design that would make a handsome framed presentation.
