Benkei Bridge at Night, 1933  by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Benkei Bridge at Night, 1933

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 of the famous Benkei Bridge, the distant pathway lined with blossoming cherry trees. Lanterns at both sides of the bridge cast a soft yellow glow, and the cherry blossoms are a delicate lavender shade as evening falls. A lovely contemplative image, beautifully composed and colored.
