Asakusa Kinryuzan Temple, 1938 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Asakusa Kinryuzan Temple, 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 - Lovely moonlit view of the pagoda of Asakusa Kinryuzan Temple, the towering structure shadowed in soft tones of gray and pink. A leafy tree frames the scene at left, and moonlight and shadows play across the quiet grounds. Two tiny figures in dark silhouette with a red lantern can just be seen in the distance at lower right. Beautiful color and bokashi shading in this attractive design.
