Kiyoshi Saito - Kiyoshi Saito was one of the greatest masters of the "sosaku hanga" or "creative print" movement in
Comments - Striking sosaku hanga view of the village of Mito, with farmers walking through the town, one carrying a large bundle of firewood on his back. Tall trees line the street along with traditional thatched-roof buildings castling long gray shadows. A wooded mountain fills the distance beneath a blue sky scattered with white clouds. The dark structure framing the scene at left adds a sense of depth and the feeling of moving from dark to light as you enter the image. A great design by this modern master.
