Nijo Castle, Kyoto, 1933 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Nijo Castle, Kyoto, 1933

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 - Lovely evening view of Nijo Castle in Kyoto, the tower beneath a beautiful sky dotted with clouds shaded in blue and gray and highlighted with moonlight. Leafy trees frame the moat below, with moonlight shimmering on the surface of the water. Wonderful handling of the light in this handsome design.

Artist - Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)
