Katsushika Hokusai

Bullfinch and Dropping Cherry

The Ukiyo-e is printed on Echizen kizuki hosho washi (a unique kind of Japanese paper) handmade by Ichibei Iwano, a living national treasure. This makes the vivid colors and the soft, warm textures of woodcut prints come to life.

This beautiful small work is Hokusai's masterpiece. He depicted very pale pink weeping cherry flowers and a bullfinch on the cherry tree’s branch over the bright ultramarine background. Hokusai was a leading ukiyo-e artist who influenced the Japonisme movement in the 1860s. A lot of impressionist artists like Van Gogh or Monet were fascinated by ukiyo-e and copied them and Hokusai was especially loved by Art Nouveau artists such as Galle or Daum and influenced their works. It is a jewel like work.
