Description: A kachoga print by Hokusai from an untitled series known as Small Flowers, featuring a Chinese poem by the literati painter Chen Shun (1483-1544). The poem reads, "The east wind rises day and night. / Peach and plum blossoms cannot help being ruffled. / I study the dewdrops drenching the flowers. / The magnolia falls comparatively later".

A post-war reproduction from the O-Edo Mokuhan-sha Company.


This particular edition was produced by the O-Edo Mokuhan-sha, probably in the 1950-60s period. There are a few foxing spots from its long storage in their packaging, from which it has now been (thankfully) released!
