Utagawa KUniyoshi Goldfish

Ikadanori(The Raftsmen)

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.

In the latter half of the Edo period, the professions of the ferryman and the master carpenter were among the most celebrated. The ferrymen were tough since their lives and livelihoods depended on the water, but they also had contact with the elegant world of the pleasure quarters, from which they shuttled to and fro, and as such they garnered the admiration of the people of Edo. In the way they have tied back their fins, Kuniyoshi’s goldfish ferrymen certainly look manly.
