Kofuku Temple, Nara, 1937 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Kofuku Temple, Nara, 1937

Sketches of Famous Places in Japan - In the early 1960s, the publisher Hamamatsu-Do (Doi) re-released a group of classic shin-hanga landscapes by Hasui and Koitsu under the series title "Sketches of Famous Places in Japan." Using the original blocks, Hamamatsu-Do (Doi) printed the designs, which were also distributed by the publisher Oedo Mokuhansha. The series was produced in a limited edition of 200 sets of 28 subjects, very finely printed and beautifully colored. A terrific opportunity to collect a lovely shin-hanga design.

Comments - Beautiful Koitsu design of rain falling at Kofukuji or Kofuku Temple in Nara. Willow trees frame a view of a lake with the temple spire rising high above the tree in the distance. A lone figure under an orange umbrella strolls along a path on the far side of the water. A lovely landscape, beautifully shaded with shimmering reflections in the water. A wonderful shin-hanga print.
