Peacock by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Peacock

A Meiji collection - This print is offered with a small group of reprints collected in the early 20th century (pre 1910) by a Tokyo collector. The reprints that we are offering this evening were collected over 100 years ago and have the beautiful sense of age expected of the period. They are finely printed and well preserved. The prints appear original and could easily be mistaken as originals. We have just a few of these lovely old reprints. Available for a small fraction of the cost of an original, they are perfect to frame and display or collect. Only you’ll know they didn’t cost thousands!

Comments - Beautiful kacho-e or birds and flowers design of a peacock perched on a rocky outcropping, with a hen hidden along the edge of the river below. The tail is beautifully detailed, and the blue of the water and the colorful pink peonies add a touch of color. A lovely design rarely seen in reprint.

Artist - Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
Image Size - 10" x 14 5/8"
Condition - With excellent color and detail as shown. Backed with paper. A few small losses and tears at edges, repaired with backing. Toning, spotting, and soiling, slight creasing. Please see photos for details.
