Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Yokohama Sankei Garden, 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 - Lovely evening view of Shinobazu pond in the Yokohama Sankei Garden, with two beauties strolling along the shore. A temple spires rises above the tree tops across the water, the blossoming cherry trees below tinted in shades of lilac as the evening falls. Beautiful coloring and handling of the shadows and reflections.
