Nikko Futarasan, 1936 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Nikko Futarasan, 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 - Beautiful design of a lone figure walking along the pathway at Futarasan Shrine at Nikko, warm yellow light spilling from a paper lantern at the end of a pole. A torii gate leads to the complex, with tall pine trees framing the view, the scene shaded in blue and gray shadows as evening falls. A lovely, quiet contemplative design. A beautiful choice for display.
