Unique Remake of The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife

Item No.: R0001
Add to wishlist

Finally...we are very thrilled to announce - for the first time in over 100 years - a new genuine woodblock reproduction of Hokusai's acclaimed The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife of 1814. This unique remake is created by Yuuya Shimoi, who is one of the few professional woodcut craftsmen working in Japan today.

Additional Information


Shimoi made new blocks and painstakingly designed, carved and printed it in the traditional manner, one block for each color. It is his dream to let the contemporary fans experience the authentic feeling of the ukiyo-e prints from the Edo period, and not just to see them as decorative material.

Green and Pink

This elaborate remake really displays the whole authentic feel of the original including all the features with excellent green and pink coloring. The applied pigments, in this case, sumi, turmeric, indigo, sufflower red and aobanagami, have been carefully selected.

Elaborate Research

A lot of the authentic materials as used in the Edo period already disappeared and no traditional craftsman working in Japanese woodblock prints today has inherited this. As a result of this, the contemporary print maker has to elaborately research these kind of details and create them himself.

Unique Opportunity

Few reproductions of Hokusai's iconic image are known. Years ago I came across one from the Meiji era (1868-1912) and the seller had attached a hefty price tag to it (close to $3000,-!). But as far as we know, not another one has been made in the last century. So this will be a unique opportunity for you to finally obtain one.


The image size of this amazing reproduction is close to the original one. Image size is 7 1/3" x 5 1/4" inches (18,7 x 13,4cm). Total size (including margin): 11 2/5" x 8 4/5" inches (29 x 22cm).


The prints are ready for shipment and will be sent by registered mail as soon as we received your payment. 

Limited Amount

Since we'll only have a limited amount available the price will be increased over time so please be quick to inquire and grab your copy NOW.

Unique Remake of The Dream of the Fisherman's Wife

"Wow. Almost as if on cue I have to say the print is stunning - can't wait to get it framed but it won't be until December before I give it to the recipient - it's a christmas present. Have a great week and thank you."

Dear Marijn,
I want you to know that the Hokusai arrived safely and in perfect order in Beverly Hills thanks to your excellent packing. The customs people did open the box to examine the contents but, fortunately, because you had packed it so well they didn't do any damage. The idea of putting the print first in a mailing tube and then in a box was brilliant!

It's an absolutely beautiful piece! The colors are far more vivid than even in your JPEG of it. I am absolutely delighted to have it and thank you very much!!!

Kindest personal regards and thanks, your friend and customer,
Fred K.

"Dear Marijn, The octopus has arrived safely. Wonderful, wonderful. I suspect from the robust packaging that you've sent this kind of thing before. I was wondering if you'd thought of making a nicely printed version of the translated text to accompany it, perhaps on the same (format) paper but a different technique. Could be a nice add-on. Anyway, it's great. My compliments to the artist. What's next, ha ha." (Mark P. - Amsterdam, The Netherlands)
