Original woodblock print - Surimono - Hokuba Teisai (1771-1844) - 'Man Carrying Empty Palanquin (Kago)', walking through rice-fields - Japan - Early 1800s
Hokuba was one of the earliest and most significant pupils of Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), just about the only one who was ultimately able to establish a truly independent painting style. From about 1800-12 he is known to have produced illustrations for more than sixty 'Kyoka' poetry anthologies and novels in the 'Yomihon' and 'Gokan' genres. (source: British Museum)
Later he concentrated on painting hanging scrolls of beautiful women (Bijin).
In Museum Volkenkunde Leiden is a nice collection of his Surimono.
