Our framed print reproduces a Surimono
work by the Japanese artist Kubo Shunman (1757–1820). Surimono
, literally "printed matter", are high-quality, limited- edition, privately commissioned, woodblock-printed "greeting cards," mainly produced between the 1790s and the 1830s, and usually ordered for New Year's greetings. This one features a butterfly, a symbol for rebirth in Japanese culture, which keeps in with the theme of a new year.
