Sumidagawa Suijin Forest, 1934 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Sumidagawa Suijin Forest, 1934

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 - Tranquil view of Sumidagawa Suijin Forest in winter, snow falling gently across the wintry gray sky. A woman carrying an umbrella walks along the shore, a few boats visible in the distances. Lovely handling of the reflections in the water in the foreground. A handsome landscape, beautifully colored and detailed.
