Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
View of the Cave of Takinogawa

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.

Comments - Intriguing scene of travelers crossing a narrow plank bridge across the river at Takinogawa. A man carrying two baskets suspended from a yoke across his shoulders balances carefully as he makes his way across the narrow support. Other figures climb steep steps set into the path at left, past a cave entrance covered with a grill. A fascinating early Hokusai landscape imitating Western landscape conventions, with a narrow decorative border.

Artist - Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
Image Size - 8 3/8" x 13 3/8" + margins as shown
Condition - Excellent overall with no issues to report.
