Original Tsukioka Kogyo (1869 - 1927) Japanese Woodblock Print
Two Turtles and Rock, circa 1900
Comments - Terrific image of a turtle sunning itself on a rock overhanging the water at upper left. Below, another turtle begins to climb onto the bank. A striking design with handsome calligraphic line work and soft bokashi shading. A great nature design by Kogyo, who is best known for his Noh theater prints.
