Cherry Blossoms at Mukojima by Kiyochika (1847 - 1915)

Original Kiyochika (1847 - 1915) Japanese Woodblock Print
Cherry Blossoms at Mukojima

Kobayashi Kiyochika - Because of his place in history and the changing times in Japan while he was active, Kiyochika is considered both the last important ukiyo-e master and the first noteworthy print artist of modern Japan. Kiyochika studied photography with a pioneer in the field in Yokohama, and also Western-style painting. Kiyochika's style combines Western-style depiction of light and shade with contemporary subjects such as brick buildings and street cars, reflecting the rapid modernization of Japan during the Meiji era. Kiyochika bridges the transition from Edo era ukiyo-e to Meiji woodblock prints.

Comments - Handsome view of people enjoying the blossoming cherry trees at Mukojima. In the center, a man in a purple striped coat dances about happily, waving his hand, as two women watch. At left, a vendor sits at a low desk beneath a tree, and paper lanterns hang from a tea stand. Across the water, the peak of Mt. Fuji towers above the horizon. A charming spring subject.
