Fuji from the Tea Plantation of Katakura in Suruga Province from Hokusai’s most famous series: Fugaku Sanji-rokkei, the ‘Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji’. The set of 46 prints published by Eijudo c 1830-32. This design comes from the ten supplementary prints added, the so-called ura-Fuji ( ‘Fuji from the other side’ ).

Extremely good, early impression. Black outline as always. ( Only the first 36 have dark blue outlines in early states. ) Very good colour. One or two minor marks. Slight trimming and slight centre fold, otherwise a very nice example of this design. Signed Zen Hokusai Iitsu hitsu. ( There is no known impression with publisher’s mark or censor’s seal. )

Status: Sold
