Woodblock Colour Plate] Suspension bridge of hietsu sakai (Hietsu no sakai tsuribashi) [From the series] 'Wondrous Views of Famous Bridges' (SHOKOKU MEIKYO KIRAN)
Nishimuraya Yohachi, circa 1840. A very handsome handcoloured woodcut of farmers crossing the famous bridge, coloured primarily in blue as the artist intended Oban Yokoye, being 370 x 250 millimeters. Beautifully preserved, the impression strong and the colours bright. A VERY HANDSOME HOKUSAI JAPANESE EDO PERIOD WOODBLOCK PRINT BY HOKUSAI. A well known image from one of the most famous artist of the ukiyo-e style. Hokusai is of great fame due to his 'The Great Wave off Kanagawa', arguably the internationally best known and most recognized of all Edo period artwork. His influences stretched all the way to his contemporaries in nineteenth century Europe whose new style Art Nouveau, or Jugendstil in Germany, was influenced by him and by Japanese art in general. This was also part of the larger Impressionism movement, with similar themes to Hokusai appearing in Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
