A mounted postcard of Ikaru oshiroi (Grosbeak and mirabilis jalapa), c.1834, Katsushika Hokusai.

Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) was a Japanese artist best known for his vibrant and detailed woodblock prints. He is widely considered one of Japan’s most famous and influential artists.

The woodblock print shows Mirabilis Jalapa, also known as the ‘four-o-clock flower’ or ‘Marvel of Peru’, a plant native to South America. It is thought to have reached Japan via Holland, entering the country through the port of Nagaski. The lines of poetry read “Four-o-clock flowers / thrive on the far side of fences / behind the peonies” by a female poet named Yudai. 

A truly stunning gift for art lovers.
