The Kintai Bridge in Suo Province  by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
The Kintai Bridge in Suo 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.

The Kintai Bridge in Suo Province - A beautiful Hokusai scene of a rain shower over the graceful arches of the famous Kintai or Brocade Sash Bridge at Iwakuni in Suo Province. Tiny figures hurry across the structure as raindrops slant across the sky, the towers of a daimyo's palace rising above the trees on the opposite shore. A terrific design from this wonderful series.

Artist - Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
Image Size - 9 7/8" x 14 7/8" + margins as shown
