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

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.

Two Editions

It will be issued in two editions; one of the first state (using more expensive materials approaching the original even more) and a second state. The print in the above images is the second state version. The work is printed on Japanese washi paper.
