Late Spring in Kyoto, 1966 by Seiichiro Konishi (1919 - ?)

Original Seiichiro Konishi (1919 - ?) Japanese Woodblock Print
Late Spring in Kyoto, 1966

Sosaku Hanga - The sosaku hanga or creative print movement in Japan began in the early part of the twentieth century. Unlike the traditional collaborative woodblock printing process utilizing a separate artist, carver, and printer along with a publisher, the sosaku hanga movement emphasized artist involvement in designing, carving, and printing the blocks himself, as the sole creator of his work. The movement gained popularity following World War II, earning international acclaim and expanding subject matter to include abstraction. Today most contemporary Japanese print artists design, carve, and print their woodblocks themselves, continuing the vibrant creative tradition established with ukiyo-e. Sosaku hanga prints encompass a wide range of subjects and expressive artistic styles, and are a great choice for a collector interested in modern and contemporary prints.

Seiichiro Konishi - Born in Kyoto, Seiichiro Konishi's terrific sosaku hanga designs focus on views of Kyoto and the surrounding areas. After studying painting and design, Konishi taught himself woodblock printing and began exhibiting his prints in Kyoto in 1951. His works are characterized by bold line work and strong forms, most without the use of a black key block. Konishi carves and prints his own blocks and releases them in limited editions. He has exhibited in solo and group shows in Japan and internationally, but his works are seldom seen outside Japan. A great choice for a collector of sosaku hanga prints.
