The Suspension Bridge On The Border Of Hida And Etchu Provinces - Katsushika Hokusai - Japanese Woodcut Ukiyo-e Painting - Framed Prints

This is one Hokusai's most well-known series, consisting of eleven known designs that, as the title suggests, depict all manner of bridges located at various locations throughout Japan. The proposed print depicts a precarious suspension bridge in a mountainous landscape. Two rural laborers heavily laden with goods cross the bridge, one depicted with his foot raised as if he is in motion, and the other at rest midway, gazing out at the vast scene spread out before and below her.

Hokusai depicts the landscape in varying shades of blue, yellow, and green that, as in most of his prints, intensify the visual appeal of nature while they diverge from naturalistic description. Overall the palette (aside from some vivid blue) is pale, due not to fading but to an intentional choice of subdued hues. The woman is a surrogate for the viewer, her back to us (and thus facing the landscape as do we) as she looks in awed silence at the vast landscape. The human presence is contrasted with the natural by juxtaposing the rigid and regular shapes of human intervention (the rectilinear bridge) with the curving irregularity of the mountainous landscape.
