Katsushika Hokusai

Wisteria and Wagtail

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 is one of ten prints in a famous chuban (small size) series that Hokusai designed ata the age of seventy. Each print is inscribed with a poem. This composition shows a wagtail raising its tail admist elegantly drooping wisteria. Wagtail and Wisteria is considered particularly beautiful because of its subdued of color.
