Woodblock Prints by Hokusai and Hiroshige

Katsushika Hokusai (1760 – 1849) is regarded as one of the most creative and influential minds in the history of Japanese Art.  Self described as an ‘old man mad about drawing’ Hokusai’s works include iconic Thirty-six Views of Mt Fuji series, including his most celebrated image The great wave off Kanagawa 1830–34 and “A Tour to the Waterfalls in Various Provinces”.

Ando Hiroshige (1797-1858) was one of the famous woodblock print artists of the EDO era. His works include scenes of Nakasendo and many other woodblock print series such as the “Sixty-nine Stations of the Kiso Kaido” (Nakasendo).

Kasasagi Fine Arts is a small family business based in Melbourne with a passion for Japanese art and culture.  Our website features some of our collection of woodblock prints by Hokusai, Hiroshige and many other Japanese artists.

Unlike lithographic prints which are created on a printer using the original image, we sell genuine woodblock prints.  They are made from hand carved woodblocks and created on hand made washi paper.  The entire process is done by hand.

Visit us at The Melbourne Fair from 23 to 26 November at the Caulfield Racecourse where we will have a more extensive range of our woodblock prints and scrolls along with antique porcelain, lacquer ware, Masks and Military objects.

For your complimentary all day pass for 2 to attend The Melbourne Fair please email us at kasasagi.ai@gmail.com.

We also have a limited number of passes for 2 for the opening night (23 November).  Please include your postal address and a ticket will be mailed to you.
