Seller: hughmartin (283) 100%, Location: Fountain, Colorado, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 302478386353 Antique Japanese manga wood block print by Katsushika Hokusai, over 200 years old (circa 1812), all original and authentic, actual print is 5 x 7 inches on hand-made Washi paper mounted on 9 x 11 poster board using two folded stick-on tabs on the back near each top corner. Originally a leaf (page) in an etehon (art manual). Very good condition, no tears or damage from wear, other than a very small hole on the left edge near the middle (visible in the photo when zoomed). Note: the picture of the back side is just representative of the mounting method, and may not be of the actual print being purchased. The front side picture is, however, of the actual print being purchased. "In 1811, at the age of 51, Hokusai changed his name to Taito and entered the period in which he created the Hokusai Manga and various etehon, or art manuals. These etehon, beginning in 1812 with Quick Lessons in Simplified Drawing, served as a convenient way to make money and attract more students. Manga (meaning random drawings) included studies in perspective." -- Wikipedia "Block-printed in three colours (black, gray and pale flesh), the Manga comprise literally thousands of images in 15 volumes, the first published in 1814, when the artist was 55." -- Wikipedia Primary Material: Wood
