A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

Illustrated Tang Poems in Five-Syllable Lines - Handsome design from Hokusai's five-volume series "Illustrated Tang Poems in Five-Syllable Lines" (Ehon Toshisen gogon-ritsu). Published in 1833, these prints illustrate famous Chinese poems from the Tang Dynasty [618-907]. Hokusai's black and white woodblocks are beautifully detailed, creating lyrical and evocative settings. Images include elegant palaces, travelers making their way through the countryside, warriors in battle or relaxing, and even a few kacho-e or birds and flowers designs. Hokusai illustrated more than 250 books in his lifetime, and these interesting scenes display his masterful compositions and skillful draftsmanship. The "Ehon Toshisen" series comprises 26 volumes altogether, featuring both five-and seven-syllable poems, published between 1788 and 1836, with several artists illustrating multiple volumes each. A rarely seen series and a nice opportunity to collect an original Hokusai woodblock.
