Satta Pass by Kiyochika (1847 - 1915)

Original Kiyochika (1847 - 1915) Japanese Woodblock Print
Satta Pass
Series; Views of Famous Sights of Japan
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.

Views of Famous Sights of Japan - Published between 1896 and 1897, Kiyochika's "Views of Famous Sights of Japan" depicts famous scenic areas throughout Japan. The series comprises 28 designs in a vertical format, rendered with an attractive sketch-like quality. The subjects range from more intimate views of people enjoying nature to dramatic waterfalls and mountains. A handsome Kiyochika landscape series that is rarely seen.
