Carla,

The Hokusai print is untitled but is referred to as "Dragonfly and Bellflowers." It is one from a set of ten designs in the so-called 'kach-e' ("flower and bird prints") genre. All ten are in horizontal ban format issued by the publisher Eijd in 1830. The dragonfly hovers just left of center near the top, while the bellflowers ('kiky') fill much of the lower 2/3 of the image, with one bunch on the right extending to the top of the sheet. The signature ('Zen Hokusai Iitsu hitsu') and seals (kiwame and Eijd) are on the lower left.

John
