Woodblock print (reprint), Published by Tokyo National Museum - Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) - 'Lumberyards on the Takekawa in Honjo' - From the series "Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji" - Late 20th century

Honjo was famous for its many lumberyards on the riverbanks. On this side of the river, three men are busily stacking wood. A man on the left throws a bundle of wood to another man atop the stack. In the middle, a man saws a timber into planks. All these men's postures are from the well-studied human movements Hokusai recorded in his sketchbooks, the Manga. The lumberman also appeared in several of his prints. Ukiyo-e prints often show their publisher's name by a seal. In this series, Hokusai is sometimes inconsistent about impressing the seal of Eijudô, his publisher. Here he humorously reveals the publisher's name in the horizontal sign at right, which mentions "Lumberyard of Nishimuraya" - that is, Nishimura Eijudô. The key-block was printed in black, not blue, as in the first thirty-six prints.
