  • 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 12โ€x18โ€ (30cm x 45cm) as this was closest to the โ€œchubanโ€ 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

    Five river trout glide through calm waters.

    The fish in this piece, produced as a private commission, are notable for the accurate observation of the heads and the way the bodies appear three-dimensional. Although swimming fish were a common subject in Japanese art, they were generally represented as idealized "lucky" fish, rather than in such a true-to-life manner.

    The poem on the left (by Haruzono Shizue) reads:

    "The falling of the autumn rain does not disturb the beauty of the trout in the Tamagawa river; no dirt has sullied their shining skin."ย 

    Western visual and artistic concepts had begun to penetrate Japan by Hiroshige's time, and this is clearly visible in some of his depictions of fish. Perhaps due to the influence of zoological encyclopedias, as well as Dutch still life, Hiroshige made use of precise observation to create realistic-looking fish.

    In this series, known as "Every Variety of Fish" or "Grand Series of Fishes", Hiroshige designed four series of ten prints. Beautifully detailed varieties of fish and sea life are presented with grasses or plants against soft bokashi shading. Generally the animals are arranged as food, rather than living, breathing creatures. Originals from this series are scarce.

    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.ย
