Suspension Bridge between Hida and Esshu Provinces  by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Suspension Bridge between Hida and Esshu Provinces
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.

Suspension Bridge between Hida and Esshu Provinces - Fantastic Hokusai print depicting two travelers on a narrow, precarious suspension bridge between two peaks. The rugged, towering cliffs and white clouds, coupled with the birds in flight, emphasize the tremendous height of the location. A great design with a very dramatic natural setting.

Artist - Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
Image Size - 10 1/8" x 14 7/8" + margins as shown
