The Coast of Shinagawa, 1935 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Coast of Shinagawa, 1935

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 - Beautiful night scene by Koitsu of boats at Shinagawa, sailing under a softly glowing full moon. The moonlight and the shadows of the ships are reflected in the gently rippling surface of the water, creating a shimmering display of light. Beautifully shaded with a lovely palette of soft blues and plum along the horizon.
