Hokusai - Illustration from 'Life in Edo'

A beautifully economical illustration by Katsusika Hokusai (1760-1849) , the master of Japanese woodblock prints.

From the 'Hokusai Mangwa' series, in which "he depicts ordinary people’s lives, animals,
plants, landscapes and human figures," much of it with the humour and economy you see here. You can find much of this delightful series at this collector's site.
