Mii Temple, 1936 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Mii Temple, 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 - Intriguing view of Miidera or Mii Temple looking out over the tile rooftop of a structure as two women in kimono and colorful obi stroll along a walkway. A warm rosy light comes from the inside of the building at right, the figures casting long shadows on the ground. The twinkling lights of the city can be seen in the distance at upper left and the sun sets. An attractive design with an interesting perspective.
