Fishing at Uraga in Sagami Province by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Fishing at Uraga in Sagami Province
Series; A Thousand Views of the Sea and Waterside

A Thousand Views of the Sea and Waterside - Hokusai's striking series "A Thousand Views of the Sea and Waterside" is considered one of the great landscape series from the later part of his career. Focusing on fishing and the movement of water, Hokusai's images beautifully capture mesmerizing scenes on the ocean, at the beaches, and along the rivers of Edo era Japan. Today collectors prize these beautiful old reprints from the "Sea and Waterside" as they are rarely seen in the market compared to Hokusai's more famous "Thirty-six Views of Fuji" series. If these wonderful views appeal to you, bid now!

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.
