Page from an Unidentified Woodblock Book

by Illustration in the style of Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849)

Abstract

Double page woodblock printed book illustration; ink and color on paper. Depicts a courtier and attendant kneeling before a priest, who is unrolling a handscroll. Although aesthetically pleasing, the condition of this print is somewhat problematic (paper soiled). It is a good example of the type of illustrated books that were so popular in the 18th and early 19th centuries in Japan.
