Series; Forty-eight Hawks Drawn from Life, 1859

Forty-eight Hawks Drawn from Life - Terrific design from Nakayama Sugakudo's most well-known series, "Forty-eight Hawks Drawn from Life," first published in 1859. A student of Hiroshige, Sugakudo was known for his high quality kacho-e, prints of birds and flowers. This lovely series depicts many varieties of birds in their natural habitats, not just hawks as in the series title, carefully observed and drawn with fine detail and attractive color. A few designs include embossing on the feathers, a deluxe printing technique. A wonderful choice to collect or display.
