Katsushika Hokusai

Mount Fuji with Cherry Trees in Bloom

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 work shows signs of genius, even though he was still a relatively obscure ukiyo-e artist at the time. Featuring two major motifs, each an image of the Japanese people, the gracefully drawn cherry trees and Mount Fuji are recognized by admirers as an outstanding masterpiece. Delicate color schemes and frequent use of embossing are elaborately executed throughout the piece. Privately commissioned for clients with sophisticated tastes, it was thought to be and still is a deluxe production.
