Rainy Miyajima, 1941 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Rainy Miyajima, 1941

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 view of the famous torii gates at Miyajima during an evening shower. Flames flicker in the two stone lanterns framing the view, and a small deer pauses at the water's edge for a drink. On the far shore, a single glowing window is reflected in the water's surface. A beautiful atmospheric scene with soft bokashi shading and wonderful handling of the raindrops. Would make a striking framed display.
