Wisteria at Kameido Tenjin Shrine, 1881 by Kiyochika (1847 - 1915)

Original Kiyochika (1847 - 1915) Japanese Woodblock Print
Wisteria at Kameido Tenjin Shrine, 1881
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

Kobayashi Kiyochika - Because of his place in history and the changing times in Japan while he was active, Kiyochika is considered both the last important ukiyo-e master and the first noteworthy print artist of modern Japan. Kiyochika studied photography with a pioneer in the field in Yokohama, and also Western-style painting. Kiyochika's style combines Western-style depiction of light and shade with contemporary subjects such as brick buildings and street cars, reflecting the rapid modernization of Japan during the Meiji era. Kiyochika bridges the transition from Edo era ukiyo-e to Meiji woodblock prints.

Wisteria at Kameido Tenjin Shrine, 1881 - Lovely spring scene of beauties enjoying a visit to Kameido Tenjin Shrine. Two women watch the koi from a verandah, the trellis overhead festooned with delicate purple wisteria blossoms. Another visitor climbs the drum bridge near the center. A beautiful view.
