    About

    In 1811 the publisher Hirabayashi Shogoro commissioned this painting from Hokusai to celebrate the completion of the best-selling serial novel Chinsetsu yumihari-zuki ('Strange Tales of the Bow Moon'), which was published in twenty-nine volumes between 1807 and 1811. The text was by a leading popular author, Takizawa Bakin (1767-1848) and the illustrations by Hokusai. When the scroll was completed, Bakin inscribed a poem phrased in mock-military terminology appropriate to the subject to celebrate his friendship with the publisher.The inscription translates:'A word gives great pleasure and friendship profits.The distribution of forces at this time, observes the wishes of the Lord. On the island in the Eastern Sea where Hachiro holds court, truly this year's blessings are so profuse that the could of the devil-ridden hear clear away and the light of the bow-moon shines bright.'
