River Wetlands, 1974 by Fumio Kitaoka (1918 - 2007)

Original Fumio Kitaoka (1918 - 2007) Japanese Woodblock Print
River Wetlands, 1974

Fumio Kitaoka - Born in Tokyo, Fumio Kitaoka studied at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts and later in Paris at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux Arts. Kitaoka experimented with a range of subjects and styles from bold abstractions to expressionist figures, and is known for his later colorful landscape woodblock prints. Kitaoka taught in the USA during the 1960s and exhibited internationally, showing regularly at the celebrated College Women's Association of Japan's annual print show in Tokyo. His vibrant and distinctive works are popular with modern collectors and are included in the collections of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Comments - Beautiful view of a river winding through wetlands, framed by a grassy slope dotted with wildflowers in the foreground. Shimmering silver mica over the sky and along the horizon gives the appearance of mist in the distance. A lovely, extra-large format design that would make a terrific framed display.
