Five-story Pagoda at Nikko, 1936 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Five-story Pagoda at Nikko, 1936

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 winter scene of the towering five-story pagoda at Nikko during a snowfall. White flakes drift gently through the night sky, settling on the pine trees framing the view. The colorful red spire stands out against the lovely muted tones of the sky and the silhouetted trees. A wonderful design with soft bokashi shading.

Publisher - Doi, later edition from original blocks
