Cranes on a Snow-Covered Pine Tree (1834) - 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.

  • Against a grey, bokashi-washed sky, two cranes preen themselves amidst the branches of a tree beset with winter snow.

    Likely a new year print, as Hokusai draws upon the symbolic significance of the crane and the pine tree, which were both associated with the new year in Japanese culture. The covering of snow also suggests the season.

    Hokusai is also probably alluding to the "happy land of the immortals" on mythical Mount Horai, where cranes were believed to make their homes amidst the pine-clad slopes.

    This print is part of an untitled series of long, vertical nature studies from 1833, at a time when Hokusai produced many such detailed prints of birds, flowers and other animals. These elongated prints, with exquisite detail, symbolic allusions and fine printing were likely aimed at a more well-to-do audience in the Edo cultural elite.
