    This Japanese(?) Silk Screen/Block Print was a find at the Flea Market this Weekend 11/2-3/2019, and any information would be appreciated.
    The Framed Print is 19 1/2"w x 14 3/4"h, and the Print is 14"w x 9"h. Hand written on the back is Hokusai -1760-1849, and I don't know why, maybe an Attribution, because I really don't think it's old! :^D It's marked in the upper left corner with two different marks, and another red mark on the lower left edge.

    This is information about the original Hokusai Block Print from smarthistory.org :
    Katsushika Hokusai, Fine Wind, Clear Weather, Also known as Red Fuju, from the series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, c. 1830-31, woodblock print, ink and color on paper, 9 5/8 x 15? / 24.4 x 38.1 cm (Museum of Fine Arts, Boston)

    Thank you for looking, and all comments are welcome! :^)

      I can read a bit of Chinese, and Japanese and Chinese share some characters. The red mark should be the identification of the artist. The characters int he white block seem to say what you indicated "36 views of Mount Fuji". The writing to the right of the characters in white block is written in cursive and difficult to read. The top character looks to be the character for 'North'. It probably indicates the locational aspects of the view.

      Thanks much EliY789, every bit helps, it surprised me how many different Artists copied this Block print, a real Tribute to the original done by Katsushika Hokusai! :^D
