Noel Nouet - Noel Nouet was a French artist and poet who spent much of his life in
Akasaka Mitsuke, 1936 - Beautiful view of Akasaka Mitsuke during a spring shower. A tree covered with delicate pink blossoms and buds frames a view of the river under the slanting raindrops as pedestrians cross the bridge in the distance. Beautiful shading in the water and sky, the soft blues and grays contrasting with the lively green grass and trees. A charming spring subject.
This presentation - This print comes in a handsome presentation format as originally issued by the publisher. The print is loose within a windowed paper mat that slides into an outer gray folder with the artist's name and series in metallic gold, accompanied by a page of commentary in Japanese. We rarely see these woodblocks come with the original folders. A nice choice for a collector.
