Carp and Other Fish

The sinuous curve of fish in motion has been the inspiration for many Japanese prints and paintings. Carp and koi, with their vibrant colors and distinctive shape, are particularly popular subject matter. Similar to traditional bird and flower prints, the fish in shin hanga are often paired with a flowering plant or sprig of greenery. In some other examples, they are depicted leaping upward while stylized sprays of water fall around them. Hiroshi Yoshida's print, Carp in Pond, and Fujio Yoshida's print, Gold Fishes, show fish as they are typically seen in captivity.
