Nihonbashi Bridge, 1936 by Noel Nouet (1885 - 1969)

Original Noel Nouet (1885 - 1969) Japanese Woodblock Print
Nihonbashi Bridge, 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.

Nihonbashi Bridge, 1936 - Wonderful, atmospheric view of Nihon Bridge during a rainstorm. Raindrops slant across the scene as pedestrians hurry across the bridge under umbrellas. A boatman takes refuge under the graceful stone arch of the structure, waiting for the shower to stop. Terrific detail in the shimmering reflections on the water and the buildings on the horizon. A great design.
