Katsushika Hokusai

Perspective View of Oji Inari Shrine, Asukayama

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.

Hokusai kept pursuing NEW as an ukiyo-e artist throughout his life. He was inspired by the perspective of western paintings and created "New style of Ukiyo-e", and this is one of them. He depicted many people cheerfully enjoying "Hanami" Sakura blossoms viewing in front. As Hokusai expected, the viewer's eyes are sucked into the labyrinth of the perspective. A beautiful spring scene in Japan as if a pink fairyland is depicted in Hokusai’s very bold composition.
