Fuji Lucky Day, 2014 by Kunio Kaneko (born 1949)

Original Kunio Kaneko (born 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Fuji Lucky Day, 2014

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.

Comments - Striking contemporary view of Mt. Fuji at sunrise. Kaneko has applied gold leaf to the sky except for the clouds and copper colored leaf to the clouds along the base of the mountain, creating a beautiful shimmering effect. A terrific limited edition design that would make a great framed display.
