Poem by Minamoto no Muneyuki Ason by Hokusai (1760 - 1849)

Hokusai (1760 - 1849) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Poem by Minamoto no Muneyuki Ason
Series; One Hundred Poems as Explained by the Nurse

Poem by Minamoto no Muneyuki Ason - Lovely Hokusai print from his "One Hundred Poems" series. Fishermen strain to hold a net against a rushing stream on a hillside, one man standing in the water and the others along the banks. A bonfire burns on the ground nearby, sending clouds of smoke skyward. The poem by Minamoto no Muneyuki Ason, grandson of Emperor Koko, reads:

Winter loneliness
In a mountain hamlet grows
Only deeper, when
Guests are gone, and leaves and grass
Withered are;--so runs my thought.

Beautiful rich color in the background with soft shading in the flames. A striking Hokusai composition that would make a beautiful display.

Artist - Hokusai (1760 - 1849)
Image Size - 10" x 15 1/8" + margins as shown
