Bridge at Fukui in Echizen Province by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Bridge at Fukui in Echizen Province
Series; Famous Bridges in Japan

Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.

Publisher - Adachi from a rare series of Edo masterwork designs. Adachi publisher seal in margin or on reverse.

Adachi was one of the most respected publishers of the 20th century. Their woodblocks were printed to the highest standards with excellent color and fine detail. Founded in 1925, Adachi also chose interesting and varied subjects for their prints and was the only publisher of many famous old ukiyo-e images.

Bridge at Fukui in Echizen Province - Terrific view of the famous bridge at Fukui with its unusual construction -- in wood and stone. Hokusai shows the bridge on an overcast day with clouds streaking across the sky as travelers cross, the rooftops of the city in the distance and fabric stretched out to dry on frames along the opposite shore. A lovely scene.

Artist - Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
Image Size - 9 7/8" x 14 7/8" + margins as shown
Condition - Excellent overall with no issues to report.
