Trying to find original of this Japanese Painting - 09-10-2010, 08:05 PM

This was a project in my class and I want to see a bigger picture of it, and what it looked like before it was drawn over. Unless that is actually how it is suppose to look like... But I would like to see a larger (possible color) picture... Thank you

And whoo hoo for first post

Thank you!

It is however, cribbed off of the style of Hokusai's series of views of Mt. Fuji.

it is also a kitsch

"cribbed off" - thanks Columbine, I've learned another piece of English

When I have read what you wrote, I looked at that painting once more, and I wondered if a word "creeped off" would me more suitable lol

It's weird. I don't like it much either.

Glad to have taught you something!

The original is by 昇亭北寿 (Shoutei Hokuju), a disciple of Hokusai.

And this didn't come from my knowledge; It's stated at bottom right of the drawing.

Neither can I, but this kind of thing happens in all forms of art, I guess.

He`s a world famous artist, not just some random guy. While I wouldn`t call that pic something representative, the other stuff he is famous for is probably the reason for the high price.

I have a signed print of one of his paintings...


Make the move!
