Tokusa Kari (Gathering Rushes) by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Tokusa Kari (Gathering Rushes)

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 - Beautiful Hokusai print depicting an old man returning home with his harvest of rushes tied to a pole over his shoulder. He crosses a narrow bridge above the undulating current of a river, a full moon visible in the darkening sky as evening falls. The subject comes from the Noh play of an old man who makes his living selling these rushes. For years he has been looking for his missing son, who had run away from home. The design is the favorite from the series, for it conveys a sense of the aging man's profound solitude.
