Toyota Hokkei : “Delicacies of the Sea (Kanagawa)” (1818-1830)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

Toyota Hokkei was a student of Hokusai, and before he was a student of Hokusai he was a fishmonger. Depicting an octopus and fish representative of the sea life of Kanagawa Prefecture, this print is one of his sixteen-part series Souvenirs of Enoshima. In travel-related series such as these, Hokkei and Hokusai were capitalizing upon the rising popularity of tourism in late Edo Japan and loosing the ukiyo-e genre from its obsession with actors and courtesans.
