Rice Fields by Tokuriki (1902 - 1999)

Original Tokuriki (1902 - 1999) Japanese Woodblock Print
Rice Fields
Series; Sacred Sites of the Holy Priest Shinran

Tokuriki Tomikichiro - Born in Kyoto, Tokuriki Tomikichiro spent his entire career in the city. After initially studying Nihonga or Japanese style painting, Tokuriki switched to woodblock prints in 1924. Although best known for his shin-hanga landscape prints, Tokuriki's real passion was sosaku hanga or creative prints. He enthusiastically promoted sosaku hanga, and set up his own publishing company called Matsuku after WWII to produce his designs as well as those of other artists. He taught block carving and wrote extensively on the subject of woodblock prints, while also exhibiting internationally. His modern sosaku hanga prints are expressive with bold line work and shapes, while his traditional shin-hanga views more closely resemble ink and wash paintings. Tokuriki successfully bridged these two major twentieth-century styles, and was highly influential in the development of younger artists.

Sacred Sites of the Holy Priest Shinran - Tokuriki's series "Sacred Sites of the Holy Priest Shinran" features buildings and locations associated with the 12th century Buddhist monk Shinran, the founder of the Jodo Shinshu sect. Subjects include temples and shrines, and views of the countryside. Many of these design we have never before seen. A great opportunity to collect a rare Tokuriki.
