Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Fuji from Mitsuhama (Mito) in Snow, 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 - Lovely view of Mt. Fuji from Mitsuhama (Mito) in winter, the snow-covered peak glowing yellow as the sun rises. A single sailboat can be seen in thee distance beyond a large rounded island, with snow-covered pine trees framing the scene below. A handsome composition that leads the eye through the print. Beautiful color and soft bokashi shading in this attractive design.
