Peonies and Canary - Hokusai

Peonies were popular in gardens during the Edo period. Katsushika Hokusai takes up this subject with talent by painting this composition. The flowers are faithfully represented, brought to life by elegant gradations. The play of light and shadow accentuates the volume and makes the painting more realistic. One would almost expect to see it come alive in a light breeze. The canary, with its wings spread, finishes by breathing life and movement into this infinitely poetic painting.

The artist

Born in Edo province (now Tokyo) to unknown parents, Katsushika Hokusai (1760 - 1849) is perhaps the most famous Japanese artist. A precocious young talent for drawing, he earned his living in a xylography workshop during his youth. Prolific, he published in 1814 the first of fifteen volumes of "Hokusai Manga", a sketchbook of drawings of all kinds, which represents life as it was during the Edo era. Anxious to make his prints known, whether erotic or fantastic, he travelled around Japan in search of recognition. He only obtained recognition as a landscape painter, combining his mastery of Japanese techniques with those of Western perspective. Hosukai's work includes at least 30,000 drawings and prints, which will constitute a major aesthetic shock in Europe and will influence certain artists of the late 19th century.
