The Coast of Shinagawa, 1935 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
The Coast of Shinagawa, 1935

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 night scene by Koitsu of boats at Shinagawa, sailing under a softly glowing full moon. The moonlight and the shadows of the ships are reflected in the gently rippling surface of the water, creating a shimmering display of light. Beautifully shaded with a lovely palette of soft blues and plum along the horizon.
