Sakai Hōitsu – 酒井抱一 (1761-1829) – Flowers of the Four Seasons – 四季の花 – #50 (1908)

$140.00 CAD


So highly revered was Sakai-san (he returned the Rinpa School to it’s former prestige), that in 1908 a series of his flowers of the 4 seasons saw a limited edition publication. The original paintings were faithfully traced, pasted to selected aged cherry wood blocks, carved, and then hand-printed one colour at a time, resulting in what you see here now. These prints were made with rich mineral pigments and there is expertly applied gofun to the tops of the flowers on the upper right.

Numbered 50 of the series – printed in the lower left margin.

10″ × 13.5″ – Price includes shipping worldwide! All prices in Canadian dollars. Comes with 3 hours worth of further reading and documentary viewing!
