Senso-ji Temple, 1936 by Noel Nouet (1885 - 1969)

Original Noel Nouet (1885 - 1969) Japanese Woodblock Print
Senso-ji Temple, 1936

Series; Scenes of Tokyo

Noel Nouet - Noel Nouet was a French artist and poet who spent much of his life in Japan, initially working as a French teacher. He is known for his beautiful and intricately detailed views of famous places in Tokyo, originally drawn in pen and ink. Translating these scenes into woodblock prints required the work of master carvers painstakingly recreating each line. These lovely shin-hanga designs have a freshness capturing the lively quality of the original drawing, enhanced with soft color.

Senso-ji Temple, 1936 - Beautiful depiction of Asakusa Kannon Temple, also known as Senso-ji. The majestic structure towers above the visitors thronging the grounds below. The walkway is lined with stalls and shops, and large paper lanterns hang from the eaves above the entrance gate. Wonderfully detailed with intricate line work, and lovely fresh color. A terrific view of this famous landmark.

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.
