Ushigome Kagurazaka, 1939  by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Ushigome Kagurazaka, 1939

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 - Beautiful shin-hanga design by Koitsu of a rainy night at Ushigome. Two beauties walk along the quiet Kagurazaka street under a gentle rain, the reflected lights shimmering on the wet surface of the street. A large red lantern glows at left, and light spills out from a doorway and windows. A lovely, evocative night scene.
