Moon Light in Yasaka Pagoda, 1951 by Takeji Asano (1900 - 1999)

Original Takeji Asano (1900 - 1999) Japanese Woodblock Print
Moon Light in Yasaka Pagoda, 1951

Takeji Asano - Born in Kyoto, Takeji Asano worked in both the shin-hanga and sosaku hanga Japanese woodblock print traditions. He studied Western and Japanese painting, and became interested in woodblock prints after taking a class with Hiratsuka Un'ichi, one of the founders of the sosaku hanga or creative print movement. In 1929, he helped form the Kyoto Creative Print Society. After WWII, he created many woodblocks of scenery and famous sites in and around Kyoto in various seasons. In addition to designing shin-hanga series for Uchida and Unsodo, he also published his own works. His colorful sosaku hanga woodblocks, self-carved and self-printed, have a real graphic appeal, with bold line work, sweeping views, and handsome compositions. Asano's prints are a great choice for the modern collector, and make attractive framed displays.

Comments - Lovely scene of Yasaka Pagoda against a night sky twinkling with stars. The pagoda towers above the rooftops and trees, with the yellow lights of the city spreading out into the distance. A handsome shin-hanga design with fine bokashi shading in the evening sky.
