36 Views of Mount Fuji, The Tea plantation of Katakura, Katsushika Hokusai, Japanese Print

$34.00

Description

The Tea Plantation of Katakura in Suruga Province is a brilliant woodblock painting depicting the entire workings of the tea plantation. The picture is less about a landscape depiction of the tea plantation itself and more about the daily life in it. The print is one of a series of woodblock prints called Thirty Six Views of Mount Fuji.
Despite its name, the series however has 46 blocks, since ten were added at a later date to the series. The Tea Plantation of Katakura in Suruga Province is among those added subsequently.

Hokusai created the "Thirty-Six Views" both as a response to a domestic travel boom and as part of a personal obsession with Mount Fuji. It was this series, specifically The Great Wave print and Fine Wind, Clear Morning, that secured Hokusai’s fame both in Japan and overseas. As historian Richard Lane concludes, "Indeed, if there is one work that made Hokusai's name, both in Japan and abroad, it must be this monumental print-series". While Hokusai's work prior to this series is certainly important, it was not until this series that he gained broad recognition.

All prints are made using archival art stocks and UV pigment inks to give up to 200 years life. Choose from unframed, framed and mounted and canvas panel options.
