HOKUSAI  (1760-1849)

Urashima Taro
Signed: gaku jin Hokusai ga
circa 1805-10
Fisherman Urashima Taro is about to meet Otohime, the daughter of Ryuguju, the Dragon King, in the beautifully gaufraged (embossed) water. After the fisherman spends three years (or according to other tellings three months) with her he wishes to see his parents.  When he returns, he finds that he has really been away for three centuries.

Very good impression and colors. Light soiling and centerfold but generally good condition with surimono style deluxe printing, heavy gauffrage on thick surimono-paper.
