Spring Snow, Kyoto Maruyama, 1936 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Spring Snow, Kyoto Maruyama, 1936

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 - Gorgeous winter view of Maruyama Park in Kyoto, the trees and grounds covered with a soft blanket of snow. Two women share an umbrella in the foreground as another hurries across the bridge at right. Snow falls gently and the graceful branches of a willow tree frame the scene overhead. Beautifully colored with soft gradations of blue violet and gray. A striking design, one of Koitsu's best.
