For Sale: Excellent Woodblock Remake of The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife Print

Finally…we are very thrilled to announce – for the first time in over 100 years – a new genuine woodblock reproduction of Hokusai‘s acclaimed The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife of 1814. This unique remake is created by Yuuya Shimoi, who is one of the few professional woodcut craftsmen working in Japan today.

The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife Print For Sale‘ (2018)

Painstakingly

Shimoi made new blocks and painstakingly designed, carved and printed it in the traditional manner, one block for each color. It is his dream to let the contemporary fans experience the authentic feeling of the ukiyo-e prints from the Edo period, and not just to see them as decorative material.

Green and Pink

This elaborate remake really displays the whole authentic feel of the original including all the features with excellent green and pink coloring. The applied pigments, in this case, sumi, turmeric, indigo, sufflower red and aobanagami, have been carefully selected.

Elaborate Research

A lot of the authentic materials as used in the Edo period already disappeared and no traditional craftsman working in Japanese woodblock prints today has inherited this. As a result of this, the contemporary print maker has to elaborately research these kind of details and create them himself.

Unique Opportunity

Few reproductions of Hokusai’s iconic image are known. Years ago I came across one from the Meiji era (1868-1912) and the seller had attached a hefty price tag to it (close to $3000,-!). But as far as we know, not another one has been made in the last century. So this will be a unique opportunity for you to finally obtain one.

Testimonials:

“Dear Marijn, The octopus has arrived safely. Wonderful, wonderful. I suspect from the robust packaging that you’ve sent this kind of thing before. I was wondering if you’d thought of making a nicely printed version of the translated text to accompany it, perhaps on the same (format) paper but a different technique. Could be a nice add-on. Anyway, it’s great. My compliments to the artist. What’s next, ha ha.” (Mark P. – Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

“Received with thanks! Superb.” (Henry K. – Toronto, Canada)

“Dear Marijn, Just wanted you to know that I received the print in perfect condition and I am extremely pleased with it! I am so happy that I had the opportunity to add this special print to my collection. Thank you very, very much! All my best, Alan.” (Alan J. – MA, USA)

“The remakes arrived last Friday in perfect condition. Thanks a lot. Kind regards, Philippe.” (Philippe – Paris, France)

“Hi Marijn, Item is very nice. I just purchased the first state which is great and very similar to the original. I am always interested in an old edition. If anytime you can provide, please, let me know.” (Miquel – Majorca)

“Hello Marijn, I’ve successfully received the print. The quality is great, it’s a lovely job. I’m very grateful, and I’m seeking for the best place in my home to place the print! (Olga L.Z. – Nayarit, Mexico)

Wow. Almost as if on cue I have to say the print is stunning – can’t wait to get it framed but it won’t be until December before I give it to the recipient – it’s a Christmas present. Have a great week and thank you. (Gabby M., Sydney, Australia)
