Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Ueno Shinobazu Pond, 1939

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 Ueno Park, the water framed by a large pine tree at right. A temple spires rises above the tree tops across the shore, the sun casting a soft yellow glow along the horizon as night falls. Beautiful coloring and handling of the clouds and foliage. A beautiful subject.
