Swallows and Kingfisher with Rose Mallows (1838) - Fine Art Print

Size Guide
  • Capturing the beauty of the original artwork

    Every one of our prints is made using the Giclee printing process, for a museum-quality look and feel that does justice to the original art.

    Giclee printing is the gold-standard for preserving the meticulous detail and stunning colors that we love in the Japanese masters. All our prints are fade and fingerprint resistant, so you can enjoy their beauty for years to come.

    We chose to offer 12”x18” (30cm x 45cm) as this was closest to the β€œchuban” size sheets used for woodblock prints historically.

    All of our prints come with matte finish for a more authentic appearance.

    Framing Options:

    • Unframed
    • Framed - black
    • Canvas wrap

    Ready-to-Hang and Made to Last

    Mounting brackets are included and centered on our framed prints and canvas wraps.

    All of our prints are made to last, with fade-resistant colors and materials. See how they arrive in the unboxing videos below.

  • About The Art

    Two swallows swoop down from above, while a kingfisher perches above a rose mallow and dips its beak into the flower.

    The details of the birds and flowers are sharp, and the intensity of the color and vigor of the movement gives this print a lively quality. Meanwhile, the soothing bokashi shading of the abstract background provides room to breathe and balances out the vivid colors and details.

    Prints in this genre as are known as kacho-e (birds and flowers prints), which focus on carefully observed birds, insects, fish and flowers, generally seen in their natural habitats. Hiroshige produced a large number of such prints, and was apparently influenced by Western realism, which had begun to influence Japanese art at the time, with the arrival of Dutch traders and European zoological encyclopedias in old Edo.
