Horiyuji Temple, Nara, 1938 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Horiyuji Temple, Nara, 1938

Tsuchiya Koitsu - After moving to Tokyo at age fifteen, Koitsu studied for many years with the woodblock artist Kobayashi Kiyochika. Known for his beautiful landscape prints with a dramatic use of light and shade, Koitsu was one of the leaders of the shin-hanga or new print movement in 20th century Japan.

Comments - Peaceful view of the spire of Horyuji Temple on a rainy day, a large pine tree framing the scene on the right. Two women walk along the pathway towards the gate under colorful umbrellas, the red and white stripes of the kimono in the foreground adding a visual link to the red lines of the pagoda. A lovely atmospheric image.
