Why this is a
Masterpiece

Masukichi's bravura pieces were created on official commission from the Japanese government for major exhibitions in- and outside Japan. The “Fuji Plate”, made for the 1873 Vienna World Fair, was the first of these prestigious objects, and, in comparison with those made later, it is the smallest. Its particularly striking feature is the style of painting; Masukichi combines a Western rendering of three-dimensionality and perspective with Hokusai’s traditional theme.

History of the Object
Since the 1850s, Kawamoto Masukichi was a leading artist in the factories in Seto, producing export ceramics, first for America and later for Europe.
