Katsushika Hokusai

Masterpieces of Flowers and Birds (a set of 10 works)

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.

Masterpieces of Flowers and Birds was published around the same time as the unprecedented hit "Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji" by the same publisher, Nishimura Eijudo. Hokusai's expressive power that transformed freely while pursuing the expression of water and waves is fully demonstrated in the genre of flower-and-bird prints as well. Here, you can feel the "stillness" of the moment of rest, and the "motion" in the moment the subject sways in the wind, showing the spirit of Hokusai who attempted to fully capture the manifestations of nature that change rapidly.
Throughout all the works, this series is full of the artist's delicate and descriptive sensibilities, allowing us to enjoy the expressions of "stillness" and "motion" that Hokusai has mastered.
