Tokaido Numazu Harbor, 1940 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Tokaido Numazu Harbor, 1940

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 - Wonderful view of the harbor at Numazu as a boatman steers his craft across the water. Buildings line the shore, with boats docked at the water's edge, the view framed by pine branches at right. Mt. Fuji rises above the mountains in the distance, the snow-capped peak looming above misty clouds. A handsome scene with fine shading and shimmering reflections on the quiet surface of the sea.
