Katsushika Hokusai Masterpieces of Flowers and Birds

Blossoming Irises and Grasshopper

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 highly regarded print features realistic depiction through the use of elaborate fine lines. The veins of the leaves, consisting of numerous parallel lines, are powerfully depicted and the kirigirisu (Japanese cricket) looks as if it will move at any moment. Close inspection reveals that even the tiny hairs on its legs are presented in precise detail.
