Katsushika Hokusai Masterpieces of Flowers and Birds

Tree-peony and Butterfly

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 print shows red and pink tree-peony flowers in full bloom, and a single butterfly approaching tem. Such a precise portrayal of the butterfly in the instant before it alights on the plant demonstrates the artist's devotion to realism and depiction of nature exactly as it appeared to him.
