  • 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 “chuban” 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

  • About The Art 

    Barrier Town on the Sumida River is one of the exquisite prints which is so intricately portrayed by Katsushika Hokusai capturing the eye-soothing distant snow-covered appearance of Mount Fuji. Like his other prints based on Fuji, Hokusai has brilliantly projected the technique of foreground and background where he has exquisitely retained the placid Fuji as the backdrop and a dynamic scene of horse-riding in the forefront creating a paradoxical view. 

    Hokusai has vividly flourished the sinuous path in the midst of wetland having an action of horse-riding where three different colored horses are exquisitely tinted. Hokusai here projected contrast color in portraying horses and riders so that the print can easily attract the eyes of the spectators. The static Mount-Fuji in red color covered with white snow creates a delightful sight in the background where the animated horses and riders contribute to the scene a contradictory view. Hokusai so marvelously painted this masterpiece by retaining every single detail which makes it stunning having a lively touch. An attractive remote view of tranquil and motionless Mount Fuji is so subtly tinted as the backdrop of a dynamic circumstance.
