Tokaido Yaizunohara, 1936 by Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949)

Original Tsuchiya Koitsu (1870 - 1949) Japanese Woodblock Print
Tokaido Yaizunohara, 1936

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 - Peaceful winter landscape of a snowy farmyard at Yaizu. Water rushes over a waterwheel at right, the thatched roof of the farmhouse blanketed with snow. A hat and straw raincoats hang on the side of the building. A rosy orange glow spreads along the horizon, and a few clouds drift across the peak of Mt. Fuji. Nicely colored with fine bokashi shading in the sky.

Publisher - Doi, later edition from original blocks
