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

Ochanomizu, 1936 - Beautiful view of Ochanomizu as the sun begins to set, flooding the sky with rosy pink light and illuminating the clouds in soft orange. A canal winds its way through the city and under a bridge, a lone boatman poling his craft along the softly colored water. Two domed towers rise above the rooftops in the distance. A handsome composition, beautifully colored.
