Utagawa Hiroshige Masterpieces of Flowers and Birds in Otanzaku Format

White Heron and Blossoming Irises

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.

Colors of the blue family are the key colors in this print and this is typical of Hiroshige's color schemes. The feathers of the white heron are shown in the Karazuri (emboss) technique. A translation of the seven-character verse couplet reads, "White herons alighting on the paddy-field mark it with one thousand dots of snow. A yellow bush-warbler is a single flower on the tree".

For this print, we recommend the special frame in Tanzaku format for the best appearance. It is specially made for narrower prints in this format. Please note that this frame is smaller than other original frame which is for prints in Oban format. Please carefully read details of each frame before you place an order.
