Subject:Signature question
Posted By: Lauren Thu, Jun 07, 2018 IP: 100.40.23.195

Hi there - I have this print that I sort of assumed was very generic, but a friend pointed out the side signature and that it might be a real woodblock, not just a generic print. Any thoughts?

This is a repro of a Hokusai woodblock print. It is Reflection in Lake Misaka, Kai Province (Kôshû Misaka suimen), from the series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji (Fugaku sanjûrokkei). This series has been reproduced more than 1000 times. The text in the lower right is likely the name of the company that made the repro.

Here is an original at the Boston MFA:

Hi Stan! Thank you so much! Do you have any idea what the value might be? I'm downsizing and would like to sell it.

On artelino.com, repros from this series go for about $50 - $100. Maybe a little more since it is framed.

Cheers,
Stan
