Shinobazu Pond, 1936 by Nouet, Noel (1885 - 1969)

Original Nouet, Noel (1885 - 1969) Japanese Woodblock Print
Shinobazu Pond, 1936

Noel Nouet - Noel Nouet was a French artist and poet who spent much of his life in Japan, initially working as a French teacher. He is known for his beautiful and intricately detailed views of famous places in Tokyo, originally drawn in pen and ink. Translating these scenes into woodblock prints required the work of master carvers painstakingly recreating each line. These lovely shin-hanga designs have a freshness capturing the lively quality of the original drawing, enhanced with soft color.

Comments - Attractive evening view of Shinobazu Pond. A tall streetlight emits a soft orange glow, as do the windows in the distance, reflected on the calm water below. The sky is beautifully shaded, and two bright stars twinkle in the twilight. Lovely color and detail in this serene subject.
