Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Poem by Fujiwara no Michinobu Ason
Series; One Hundred Poems as Explained by the Nurse

Fine printing from the respected Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha - These classic designs were produced by the well known Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha amidst a resurgence of interest in ukiyo-e. Like many of these traditional businesses, the woodblock print craft was passed down through generations, and the Oedo Mokuhansha company was formed by descendents of an Edo era publisher. These are nice prints of the highest quality standards and an excellent choice if you are looking for fine old woodblock reprints.

Poem by Fujiwara no Michinobu Ason - Interesting scene of travelers getting an early morning start on the road. Palanquin bearers hurry along carrying passengers in enclosed palanquins, lanterns swinging at their sides as they rush down the slope towards the buildings at lower left. Laborers shoulder yokes with stacks of and baskets of greenery. In the distance, more travelers can be seen along the path zigzagging its way between fields as rosy light spreads along the horizon as the sun rises. The verse by Fujiwara no Michinobu Ason reads:

Though I know full well
That the night will come again
E'en when day has dawned,
Yet, in truth,
I hate the sight
Of the morning's coming light.

Nicely detailed with fine bokashi shading in the sky and ground. The publisher has applied a light tan wash to the paper to simulate an aged appearance.
