Japanese Paintings and Prints: 1800-1860

This Spring, Sebastian Izzard LLC will celebrate their twenty-fifth anniversary with an exhibition of nineteenth century Japanese paintings and prints. Concentrating on the last sixty years of the Edo period, the exhibition includes maps—both painted and printed—landscapes,dramatic historical tableaux, and studies of the natural world.

A panoramic view of Edo by the samurai artist Kuwagata Keisai (1764–1824) sets the scene followed by a rich selection of maps, landscapes, and illustrations of poetry by Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849), including his iconic Red Fuji, and paintings by his followers Maki Bokusen (1775–1824), and Teisai Hokuba (1771‒1844). Hokusai’s works are complemented by landscapes by his rival Hiroshige, including a first edition of his famous snowscape Evening Snow, Kambara , and his moonlit masterpiece Seba. Hiroshige’s bird-and-flower prints are justly famous, and we are proud to offer a fine group which includes another masterpiece, Geese in Flight Under the Harvest Moon. The exhibition closes, appropriately enough, with a print by Utagawa Kunisada (1786–1865) depicting female shopkeepers selling books and prints by the artist and his friend Utagawa Hiroshige (1797–1858).
