Description
Sakai Hoitsu, "Iris Flowers", original woodblock print from the Shiki no hana, authentic first printing by Yomada Unsodo, Kyoto, 1907-1908, Meiji Era 40-41.

Certifications of Authenticity will be included upon buyers request.

Sakai [1761-1828] served at the Imperial court and was the son of a Daimyo of Himeiji in Harima province. He painted this work from living specimens, and was assisted by Suzuki who supplemented the work. Upon Sakai's death, the work was continued and finished by Nakano [1833-1892]. He rounded out the work to contain some 1000 examples, then it was published for the first time in 1907-1908. The work contains a profusion of stunningly beautiful color woodblock-printed flowers as well as fruits & fruiting trees, illustrated in Deluxe large Oban size. The Co-painters/artists were Suzuki Sonoichi and Nakano Sonoaki.
