A large original painting, full colour on paper, 49 x 22.5 in; 124.5 x 57 cms. Shows a beauty caught in an autumnal breeze, the tree above shedding its leaves. One of Hokusai’s earliest and best pupils and, apart from painting , is also known for his surimono and book illustration. Famous for his meticulous paintings of beauties, Hokuba also produced these loose impromptu paintings using rapid brushstrokes. Painted in Bunka period (1804-1818).
Some slight rubbing of paper at top, but in surprisingly good condition given its size. Newly mounted. Signed Hokuba ga with Hokuba seal.
