Original Kiyochika (1847 - 1915) Japanese Woodblock Print
View inside Ueno Park

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 - Charming scene of a mother and daughter strolling in Ueno Park, walking along a pathway toward the temple entrance gate. Tall, dark pine trees atop grassy slopes frame the scene, creating a sense of depth with the soft hues of the buildings in the distance. The first time we've offered this attractive design.
