Fish Surimono by Hokkei (1780 - 1850)

Hokkei (1780 - 1850) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Fish Surimono

Surimono - Surimono are an exclusive subcategory of Japanese woodblock prints. Poetry clubs commissioned these designs for distribution to a small audience of members, most often as New Year's greetings. These privately published images included a wonderful range of subjects and lavish printing techniques such as embossing, burnishing, and metallic pigments. Since surimono were not sold commercially, the print runs were very small and original Edo era surimono are incredibly rare in the market today. These fine quality suriomono reprints offer a great way to collect these classic designs at an affordable price.

Comments - Beautiful surimono with traditional Japanese imagery. A carefully detailed fish rests against a large knife and blue platter, with a warmer stand holding a few seed pods on a branch. Wonderful line work in the scales of the fish.

Artist - Hokkei (1780 - 1850)
Image Size - 8 1/2" x 7 1/4"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Backed with paper. Slight toning and soiling, creasing at edges, a few marks. Please see photos for details.
